Personal profile

Personal profile

Dwi Atminarso, who is from Indonesia, commenced his Masters studies with CSU in March 2019. In 2020 an upgrade of his Masters to a PhD scholarship was approved by Australia Awards Indonesia and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) as the sponsor. The upgrade means his scholarship will extend until December 2022.

While Dwi’s fieldwork is in Indonesia, he is based at the Albury-Wodonga campus. Dwi had been working as a permanent researcher in Research Institute for Inland Fisheries, Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries Indonesia since 2010 one year after his bachelor degree from Diponegoro University. The institute is located in Palembang city, South Sumatera Province.

Research Interests

His study aims to better understand the migration requirements of Indonesian inland fish and, to assess whether fishways are useful solutions to facilitate movement.

To do this Dwi is:

  • investigating existing infrastructure sites where fishways have been installed to  determine the status of fish communities upstream and downstream
  • interviewing  local fishers to obtain a socioeconomic perspective on any changes in fish community composition before and after the dam construction and fishway construction
  • investigating if constructing barriers has impacted the genetic diversity of key species by comparing population structure upstream and downstream of the site
  • assessing the effectiveness of the fishway by understanding which species can move bi-directionally (up and downstream).

Combined, these multiple lines of evidence will be used to understand the migration patterns of fish, how river infrastructures are impacting these migrations, and whether existing solutions are sufficient.

He will be using his additional year of study to conduct social research, looking at the fishers perspective towards river, fish, governance and management. He will also research seasonal changes in fish migration and composition upstream and downstream.
