Murray Cod

Murray Cod have developed a reputation as being very suitable for growing in RAS. A well operated, quality RAS can produce a fish of around 800gms in about 8-10 months.

Due to their popularity as an angling species and the success of the stocking programs in Queensland competition for fingerlings between the two sectors has resulted in a shortage of fingerlings in some years. Therefore  the advance ordering of fingerlings from hatcheries is recommended.
