More mulloway stocked

We have now completed the stocking of 30,000 juvenile mulloway into the Georges River in Sydney’s south, 10,200 fingerlings into the Hastings River, near Port Macquarie on the NSW North Coast, and in a program first, 19,000 fish into Lake Macquarie, north of Sydney.

This latest stocking activity builds on last year’s successful release of 80,000 juvenile mulloway into the Georges River and Botany Bay and 10,000 fingerlings into the Hastings River.

These baby mulloway measured up to 45mm on release and are expected to grow very quickly, reaching legal size of 70cm in about 3-4 years. Highly regarded as an iconic sportfish, mulloway is a key target in the Georges River, Lake Macquarie and the Hastings River Recreational Fishing Havens.
