Murray Cod in the Murrumbidgee

This is a great little video released by the New South Wales Office of Environment and Heritage, showing how environmental flows have been used in the Murrumbidgee River (part of the Murray-Darling Basin) to help support and maintain populations of the Murray Cod, Australia's best-known freshwater fish.

For any international readers that I've introduced to the Murray Cod previously - I wasn't kidding! They really are that big, and they live for up to 80 years. 

Thanks to the Australian River Restoration Centre for the share.
