Fair go to Murray Cod

NSW DPI Fisheries Officers patrolling the waters of the Gwydir River, downstream of Pallamallawa, recently intercepted a 57 year old man in possession of a Murray Cod which had been taken using an illegal wire fish trap.

Using the fish trap has been costly as the man has been issued fines totaling $1,000 for unlawfully using a trap and being in possession of fish illegally taken.

Fishers are reminded that fish traps are banned in freshwater rivers and creeks throughout NSW. Fish traps used in inland waterways can cause the death of native animals, such as platypus, turtles, water rats and birds.
