  • Ngarrindjerri - the first fishers of the Lower Lakes - Lakes Need Water
    is correct in stating that the Ngarrindjerri are the region s traditional owners but he is wrong in asserting that their wellbeing was tied to the water in the lakes being fresh Prior to the construction of the River Murray Barrages in the 1930s the Murray Mouth and Coorong were connected with the Lower Lakes forming a great estuary The mix of fresh and salt water and its movement in response to both tidal and seasonal influences created a vibrant and productive ecosystem Ngarrindjeri folklore abounds with references to the meeting place of the two waters the salt and the fresh water Today we call that an estuary and it was very important to the Ngarrindjeri They relied heavily on fishing and their rich language reflects that fact with an abundance of words for fish species A scan of Mary Anne Gale s excellent Ngarrindjeri Dictionary reveals a wealth of estuarine and marine species of fish such as malawi naraingki mulloway kungguldhi congolli tinungari bream minmekutji greenback flounder kanmaindjeri poronti kanmeri saltwater mullet waltjeri saltwater perch kuratji bony saltwater fish in Coorong tarrawi salmon ngrakami gummy shark taralgi saltwater fish similar to callop pameri kop ripuri garfish and tulari black

  • Save the Murray Restore the Estuary - Lakes Need Water
    described the Lower Lakes as part of a barrier estuary that had its evolution interrupted by the barrages or as she referred to them in this presentation sea dykes The Lakes were compared to other barrier estuaries referred to as ICOLLs or Intermittently Closed and Open Lakes and Lagoons Dr Marohasy explained that the sea dykes have dammed the estuary making it totally dependent on river flows stopping the tide limiting the natural scouring of the sea mouth and interrupting the evolution of the estuary to fully tidal Mention was made of the environmental consequences of changing the Lakes to a full time freshwater reservoir in particular the disappearance of mulloway fish from Lake Alexandrina Dr Marohasy disputed the claim that the Lakes have always been fresh with reference to the diatom evidence Diatoms are microfossils and some scientists claim the particularly species present in the lake sediment over 7 000 years is evidence for a freshwater history Dr Marohasy explained there had been three periods in the evolution of the estuary and that this was evident in the diatom data and this included a period when the lakes were fully tidal In the end Dr Marohasy gave the audience

  • Tidal pressures generate estuarine conditions - Lakes Need Water
    pushed strong river flows back through the Murray Mouth and the barrages with increased salinity detected past Point Sturt and well into Lake Alexandrina This confirms the research findings of Professor Rainer Radok during the 1974 floods and the observations of Captain Charles Sturt in 1830 when he noted brackish saline water at the very extremity of the lake at Pomanda Point It is now beyond dispute that even with

  • Lower Lakes Recent Seawater Flow Reversals - Lakes Need Water
    During this period there was no input from either barometric pressure changes or wind On May 22 an intense low pressure system of 994 hPa with associated west to southerly winds of up to 40 knots crossed the area This system increased the tide levels in Encounter Bay by about 0 66m above the predicted astronomical tide to 1 4m AHD or 0 65m above the designated FSL of 0 75m in the Lower Lakes Google Map This event reversed the river flow and sea water intrusion caused salinities to rise to over 40 000 EC in the Goolwa Channel to Narnu Bay At Clayton a much smaller but measurable increase of salinity to 2800EC from about 400 EC was observed In Currency Creek the back flow of water over the spillway at the northern end of the regulator increased salinities from about 2000 to 9000 EC in this area Table 1 is a summary of the data observed for various locations The bold italic values in Table 1 indicate continuously high conditions rather than short term conditions To the southeast salinities upstream of the Mundoo Boundary Creek Ewe Island and Tauwitcherie barrages all increased to over 35 000 EC and salinities at Stony Point and Point Sturt rose to 2500 and 4500 respectively A slight rise was also recorded at the automatic recorder 7 km SE from Milang The recorder near Raukkan did not show any rise but unfortunately results from this recorder were fluctuating from 400 to over 1200 prior to this event possibly due to instrumental instability The duration and timing of the salinity increases depended on distance from the Mouth At Reedy Island in the Goolwa Channel 6 5 km from the Mouth the event occurred about 1 hour within the limits of the hourly recordings after the influx of seawater past Barker Knoll close to but on the opposite side of the Mouth and maximum salinities were maintained for about 63 hours before salinities began to decline At the HI Bridge and about 12 kms from the Mouth salinities began to rise 3 hours after Barker Knoll and maximum salinities lasted 56 hours At point Sturt the first rise in salinity was noted 32 hours after Barker Knoll and the event lasted 22 hours Associated Impacts The sudden increase in salinity caused a fish kill in the Goolwa Channel of fresh water fish and presumably other freshwater organisms Redfin were the most commonly observed dead or near dead fish and others were carp sandy sprat and bridled Goby Ken Jury In earlier years during droughts and low flows in the River Murray it was not uncommon to have reports of dead freshwater fish floating on the lake and river surfaces during saltwater incursions Olsen 1991 p17 The high tides and flow reversals of course meant that the flood flows could not be expelled and as a consequence levels in Lake Alexandrina and Albert rose from 0 1 to 0 25m This rise was also recorded
