We gratefully acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands upon which this study was conducted, the Wagiman, Jawoyn, and Malak Malak people, and thank them for providing access to their land. We thank Lizzie Sullivan (Wagiman traditional owner) and Troy Baruwei, Janet Ellis, Ryan Barrowei, Traven Shields, Mike Alengale, and Lee Jambalily (Jawoyn Ranger Program) for their assistance with fish and water collection. We thank Ben Lewis and the Jawoyn Association for organizing the consultation with traditional owners. Quentin Allsop, Wayne Baldwin, and Jonathon Taylor of the Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries are also thanked for assistance with fish collection and otolith preparation. Roger Farrow conducted the pumping of bore water samples, and Julia Schult and Matt Majid took Sr water samples at Banyan Farm for the Department of Land Resource Management. Damien McMaster assisted with production of the map. Funding for this work was provided by the Australian Government's National Environmental Research Program (Northern Australia Hub).
