The signs are all good

On the 19th of march myself and thirty odd other people including my family attended the first release of river blackfish into a river system , this had never been done before , the fish were bred on a farm from brood stock .

At the farm there are four ponds these fish were the offspring of fish in no one pond the first pond constructed at the farm.

The site chosen for the release was a former prison farm next to where I grew up, the farm is now a school camp, inside the camp is a large pond that is connected to the Cooriemungle creek this creek then runs to the Scott creek and it drains into the Curdies river.

it is hoped that these fish will survive and breed and in time their young will help to repopulate the whole river system.
