Examples are given of a number of New South Wales freshwater fish species which have declined in abundance since last century. Reasons for the declines include river regulation, changes to riparian vegetation, erosion and siltation. The effects of alien species on the stocks of native fish are also discussed together with possible remedial measures to restore both habitat and fish communities.
