The NSW Government’s Narrandera Fisheries Centre has played a vital role in freshwater fish breeding and stocking across the State. Recently, more than 5.3 million fish have been released, including a record 1.26 million Murray cod.
The Narrandera hatchery is currently undergoing a major upgrade to increase production capacity for native sportfish and threatened species.
The upgrade, which includes a new hatchery building fitted with state-of-the-art fish breeding technology, is part of a $6 million grant from the NSW Government.
