EKRFAC renews its intention to pursue the issue of re-establishing migratory pathways to allow the restocking of Lake Kununurra with barramundi. The following year, the Committee invited stakeholders to form a working group called the Lake Kununurra Fish Stock Enhancement Group (LKFSEG). The member organisations were:
- Shire Wyndham-East Kimberley;
- Ord Land and Water; and,
- Fisheries WA.
The LKFSEG gave itself three objectives to determine the feasibility of the concept:
- A report on the economic impacts of a successful recreational barramundi fishery in Lake Kununurra.
- A report to identify the ecological and social issues concerning the establishment of that fishery.
- If the first two reports were positive in their recommendations, investigate options for the development of an engineering strategy to allow barramundi to become resident in Lake Kununurra in numbers that would sustain a successful fishery.
