UPDATE: The water temp in tank 3/4 has improved to over 10 degrees if this continues I would expect breeding to be early again this year, that would be young fish mid Dec. some people tell me that they only view this blog on Facebook if you wish to see all the photo’s you should click on the link at the bottom of the screen and go to the blog.

My fish (gadopsis marmoratus ) or river blackfish are enduring very cold water at the moment around 7.6 degrees and doing very well this raises the question should we consider river blackfish for reservoirs in cold areas where Murray cod are not performing .

Blackfish are the only native fish that is viable in these cold dams and I believe if we want to catch native fish in the southern parts of Vic that are good eating and good to catch then there is no alternative.

ps We can now breed them in captivity I know this because I have done it.
