Actions to restore and develop Jungle perch recreational fisheries

Hutchison, Michael. Actions to restore and develop Jungle perch recreational fisheries. Lead Agency: Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI).

Project Start: 1 July 2012

Project End:30 June 2014


Queensland is the only state with Jungle perch. Development and restoration of their fisheries will attract interstate anglers, creating economic benefits. Jungle perch have been successfully spawned on numerous occasions by DEEDI, but larval survival beyond day 6 has been a problem. The larval rearing problem must be overcome to progress restoration and development of the Jungle perch fishery. Key areas requiring investigation are brood stock nutrition, feeding cues and optimal larval feeds. Following successful production of fingerlings, an evaluation of the reintroduction of fingerlings at selected sites is required to determine and the guide success of the stocking program.
