Thousands of fish released into Lake Tuggeranong

Share Canberra's trusted news:

MORE than 27,000 Golden Perch fingerlings have been released into Lake Tuggeranong to boost native fish numbers in Canberra’s urban waterways.

This adds to more than 40,000 native Murray Cod that were released into ACT waterways in December, according to Environment Minister Mick Gentleman.

“The ACT government’s annual fish stocking program is crucial to ensuring our lakes and ponds continue to have healthy populations of native fish,” Mr Gentleman says.

“Fish stocked into our urban lakes and ponds help take pressure off our fragile natural river populations. It also helps maintain a more natural ecosystem in our lakes and ponds by including native fish that usually need flowing water to reproduce.”
