Has anyone noticed that one of the tackle companies sponsoring this seems to be on pretty much EVERY video of illegal fishing that you see ?

Which company Steve?  Some don't have a lot of scruples.

I think if I ran Z-man or similar companies, I'd try to distance myself from illegal behaviour.

It was also distressing to see a video on utube the other day of a couple of guys intentionally chasing Cod in one of the Mary tributarys, where they are struggling to survive. I am sure that it is illegal to deliberatly target Mary river Cod in the Mary or any of it's tributarys?

You're correct.

If it isn't bad enough that Cod are under threat from introduced species, they also have to run the gauntlet of anglers breaking the rules and targeting them in tributaries of the Mary, where they are struggling to survive.
