The Victorian Fisheries Authority are asking Victorian cod fishers to complete a survey that focuses on how anglers catch-and-release cod and how the Care for Cod Campaign can be improved.

The online survey is part of a project titled, “Understanding angler perceptions and improving catch-and-release handling of large Murray cod – an iconic Australian native fish”. The purpose of this project is to understand how recreational anglers perceive catch-and-release handling practices of Murray cod, how practices and the Care for Cod campaign can be improved, and understand other perceptions of the Murray cod fishery. The project is aimed to provide better outcomes for recreational anglers and the Murray cod fishery.

It’s a partnership project with VRFish, the Women in Recreational Fishing (WIRF) network and world class fisheries experts from Keep Fish Wet.

Complete the survey and you can enter a random prize draw to win a $250 tackle voucher every week the survey is conducted. Survey closes 31 January 2023.

The results are expected to be shared in March 2023.
