Murray cod stranded

Recent stories

It’s that time of year when irrigation channels are drawn down for maintenance works.

Native fish such as Murray cod and yellas often find themselves stranded, which is why our fisheries officers worked with Goulburn-Murray Water last week to salvage and relocate them to natural waterways nearby.

Cameron Edge netted 21 cod, the largest measuring 90cm, and nine yellas from an irrigation channel near Cohuna.

Officers then transported the fish to Gunbower Creek and released them below the Cohuna Weir.
