Stuart's efforts have not only including saving native fish, but killing more than 300 carp, an invasive pest species.

His work has caught the attention of the local community, including the Tenterfield Mayor Peter Petty.

"You would prioritise what we call 'the BOFFS' — the big, old, fat, female fish — because they are your breeding stock."

Dr Boucher also called for more funding to temporarily move stressed fish before it was too late.

"What we really need is a plan, the right infrastructure, and we need the staff in fresh water systems to be able to get our ecosystems through these catastrophes," he said.
