Find your screen: Australian Fish Screen Suppliers

Get the right solution for your diversion

By Craig Boys and Tom Rayner

When investing in a new screen it’s important to find one that will suit your water volumes, diversion schedule, debris loads and local fish.

A wide variety of screen types have been developed for use overseas and some are being manufactured locally to suit Australian conditions. However, just because a screen can supplied to fit your intake, does not mean it will work efficiently and effectively to stop debris and protect fish.
We recommend you shop around to get one that meets the guidelines for Australian conditions – these will be available in late 2020.
Over the upcoming years, Australian fisheries researchers will continue to evaluate the performance of different screens and provide the most up to date advice via this website.
