LAKE ARGYLE #2

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
“The damming of the Ord River has caused major changes to the environment. Flows to the Ord River have been severely reduced.
Within Lake Argyle itself a thriving new eco-system has developed. The lake is recognised as an important wetland area under the Ramsar Convention; with Lake Kununurra it forms the Lakes Argyle and Kununurra Ramsar Site.

The lake is now home to 26 species of native fish and a population of freshwater crocodiles currently estimated at some 25,000.
Fish species that are present in Lake Argyle include barramundi, southern saratoga, archer fish, forktail cat fish, mouth almighty, long tom, bony bream and sleepy cod.

While the official website states that only incidentally a saltwater crocodile is found,other experts disagree.” (Wikipedia)
