The Murray Cod.
These guys are the beautifully marked, iconic fish of Australia. They are the largest solely freshwater fish in Australia, and the apex predator of our rivers and lakes. The hits are explosive and that’s why they are known as the king of the waterway and are a prized sport fish among anglers and our top prize getter at GoFish Nagambie 2019.
Their feeding activity lowers water quality and increases nutrient levels. This in turn leads to blue-green algae blooms which impacts recreational use of waterways.
