An Ecological Approach To Re-establishing Australian Freshwater Cod Populations - An Application To Trout Cod In the Murrumbidgee Catchment

This study shows that the re-establishment of cod populations based on release of in grown fish is not an immediate and straight forward alternative to the existing practice of stocking fingerlings into rivers. The pattern of trout cod functioning/existing/ in small river reaches, for extended periods punctuated by occasional large-scale movement, has implications for fisheries managers engaged in protecting trout cod populations through improved site selection for re-establishing species and rehabilitating habitat. This project has demonstrated that the re-establishment of ecologically sustainable fisheries of Australian freshwater cod populations is unlikely to meet with broadscale success without commitment to more informed recovery programs than those based primarily on stocking of fingerlings.
