Murray cod stocking a tourism boost for North East

Murray cod stocking a tourism boost for North East
The Department of Primary Industries has stocked 35,000 Murray cod fingerlings into the Goulburn River to encourage anglers back to areas devastated by the 2009 bushfires.

This is in addition to the 100,000 Murray cod that Fisheries Victoria stock annually in the lower reaches of the Goulburn River.

The Murray cod fingerlings purchased with the Victorian Government’s bushfire recovery funds were stocked into the Goulburn River between Seymour and Yea.

The stockings were another way that Fisheries Victoria is helping the local community recover from the impacts of the Black Saturday fires.

Recreational fishing makes an important contribution to regional economies. Encouraging anglers back to North East Victoria through fish stocking, is part of Fisheries Victoria’s on-going contribution to bushfire recovery efforts.

The Goulburn River between Yea and Seymour has the potential to be a first class native fishery for Murray cod. This reach of the river boasts rich in-stream habitat in the form of timber snags and features good access for anglers.

Signs showing river access points are located at bridge crossings and reserves between Molesworth and Seymour to help visitors find a good fishing spot.

Anglers are reminded that the three month Murray cod closed season commenced on 1 September. For more about fish stocking visit
