About NFA.

What is NFA? NFA is
Native Fish Australia. It is a volunteer organisation dedicated to the conservation of our native fish species. Our native fish have taken a battering during the last two hundred years due to pollution, alterations to stream flows and competing from introduced fish. I am proud to be a member of an organisation such as this, NFA takes positive action and I believe they are making a difference. On the right is Graeme "Grumpy" Creed, the current Secretary of the Victorian branch. He's not that bad really.
