Sail-World.com : Murray cod fishing season now open
Murray cod fishing season now open


DPI Government - Fishing

The Murray cod fishing season began on Sunday 1 December – a much anticipated date for many keen anglers.

Murray cod are an important recreational species and the Victorian Coalition Government recognises the significant social and economic value that fishing for this species brings to many communities throughout regional Victoria.

Extensive fish stocking and habitat improvement works funded by the Victorian Government mean this season, and those in years to come, should provide some great opportunities to land the iconic fish.

More than 560,000 juvenile Murray cod will be stocked into rivers, lakes and impoundments by Fisheries Victoria over the coming months. It is expected that most of these stocked fish will be of catchable size within four to five years.

This follows the release of more than one million Murray cod throughout Victoria during 2013.

Through the $16 million Recreational Fishing Initiative the Coalition Government is not only stocking fish, but also improving access and facilities, upgrading boat launching facilities, building new fishing reefs, undertaking more fisheries research and strengthening enforcement and education.

The Coalition Government is committed to improving recreational fishing opportunities for the state’s 721,000 anglers, and maintaining Victoria’s reputation as a top fishing destination.

Twelve new specially trained Fisheries officers have also recently been deployed, patrolling Victorian waters to protect our state’s fisheries for future generations.

These new Fisheries officers will work to ensure regulations such as bag and size limits are adhered to, while educating the community and promoting fishing opportunities in Victoria.

I would like to remind fishers heading out during the Murray cod season that there is a bag/possession limit of two Murray cod with a minimum size of 60 centimetres and maximum 100cm.
