At the start of the dry this year, Cape York NRM and Rodney and Anne Raymond, the property owners of Kimba Station, arranged for James Cook University fish ecologist Ebb, to survey fish and crabs in the local waterways.
The purpose of this first field trip was getting baseline estimates of the aquatic fauna prior to fencing off a reach of the Alice River from being accessible to cattle. A primary focus was on the Tiger crab (Austrothelphusa tigrina), which is an endemic species that is currently only known from the western slopes of the Kimba Plateau.Read more
