A suite of politicians and community group leaders are pressuring the NSW and Federal governments about the state of the Lower Darling.

Distressing pictures of close to a million dead fish in Menindee last week prompted Independent Ali Cupper to pass on the concerns of her constituents to Victoria's water minister.

Ms Cupper says we have a shared agenda with our neighbours on the NSW side, and the issue for them is very much an issue for us as well.

The far western councils of NSW and the Murray Darling Association have held crisis meetings over the matter.

They're in agreement that urgent short and long term strategies need to be rolled out to save the Lower Darling, requesting consistent flows for the region.
