The lower Darling was subject to three tragic fish death events in December 2018 and January 2019. The large fish death events covered a 40 kilometre stretch of the Darling River, downstream of Menindee Lakes. 

An Independent Panel was appointed by the Australian Government to determine the cause of the fish deaths and what actions can be taken to manage future events. The final report documents the panel’s findings and 27 recommendations.
