Barramundi fingerlings released into Teemburra Dam

Teemburra Dam has been stocked with 37,000 barramundi fingerlings!

Significant rain caused the dam to spill over and barramundi tragically fell victim to the spillway.

Money from the Stocked Impoundment Permit Scheme (SIPS) has secured Mackay Area Fish Stocking Association Inc. (MAFSA) 16,500 barramundi and Bass, Barra & Barcoo donated another 20,500 fingerlings towards the release.

While the little ones pictured won’t be ready before Easter, there’s still plenty of fishing opportunities available.

 

Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol Officers were excited to assist in releasing the fingerlings into the shallow weedy edges all over the dam.

It was fantastic to see so many keen recreational fishers volunteer their time to help with the release.

While the little ones pictured won’t be ready before Easter, there’s still plenty of fishing opportunities available – grab your SIPS permit now https://fal.cn/3wZdK
