Vic anglers hooked on record native fish restockings
« on: November 20, 2011, 07:32:37 AM »
More than two million native fish have been stocked into Victorian lakes and rivers to improve inland angling opportunities for recreational fishers. Never before have two million fish been released into Victoria’s waterways.

The fish – including golden perch, Murray cod, Australian bass, silver perch, trout cod and Macquarie perch – were stocked across more than 80 lakes and rivers. Anglers will soon be reaping the rewards with most expected to be of a catchable size within two years.

The recovery of drought-affected fisheries has been prioritised, with extra funds from recreational fishing licence revenue being used to boost stocking numbers.

1.1 million golden perch have been stocked, with the majority released into Lake Eildon, Nagambie Lakes, Lake Hume, Loddon River, Kangaroo Lake and Taylor Lake at Horsham.
Lake Eildon (200,000)
Nagambie Lakes (200,000)
Lake Hume (150,000)
Lake Eppalock (70,000)
Loddon River (50,000)
Campaspe River (40,000)
Kangaroo Lake (20,000)
Taylor Lake (40,000)

More than 800,000 Murray cod were also released over summer, nearly double the previous record of this iconic freshwater species.

Other Murray cod stockings include Lake Eppalock, Nagambie Lakes, Loddon River, Gunbower Creek, Avoca River, Meran Lake, Cairn Curran Reservoir, Kangaroo Lake and Lake Boga.

Other Murray cod stockings included:
Lake Eppalock (110,000)
Nagambie Lake (50,000)
Loddon River (20,000)
Gunbower Creek (20,000)
Avoca River (10,000)
Meran Lake (20,000)
Cairn Curran Reservoir (30,000)
Kangaroo Lake (20,000)
Lake Boga (15,000)


More than 102,000 Australian bass, 36,000 silver perch and smaller numbers of trout cod and Macquarie perch were also released.
