A review of the impact of eastern gambusia on native fishes of the Murray–Darling Basin

This literature review is the first output from the MDBA NFS study entitled ‘Native fish recovery following the removal of alien fish species’. Its primary purpose is to review all known and potential impacts of eastern gambusia on native fishes in the MDB; to identify native fish species most at risk of detrimental impacts; and to document the mechanisms underpinning these impacts. Ultimately, the review aims to provide a comprehensive resource that will guide the direction of the project and inform future management strategies for eastern gambusia in the MDB.
