VIDEO: Ovens River Murray cod rescue

A RESCUE mission has been carried out in the Ovens River near Myrtleford to relocate some of the Murray cod population after the bushfires in North East Victoria.

The relocation was a pre-emptive strike to ensure the fish populations are protected into the future. Work will continue to protect native fishes over the next few weeks in the rivers of the North East and Gippsland.

This project, in partnership with the Arthur Rylah Institute and North East CMA, is part of the government’s $17.5 million initial rescue package.
