Yep, I'm fairly sure barramundi have the ability to move between river systems, and recruitment is not totally dependent on individual river flows.

When I was engaged in fish stocking in the Peter Faust dam 24-25 years ago we release 100,000 fish at a time. When the rain eventually come they go over the wall in big numbers. The Fitzroy is replenished by various sources without worrying about the natural die back in billabongs that is par for the course in Qld's catchments and particularly along the Central Coast where rainfall is hit and miss They've even found dead crocs in dried out billabongs on the Cape. It's not that unusual and has been part of climate variability for thousands of years , yet the barra are still here. One dry Summer does not break a system, particularly one that is also supplied by fish from the Calliope and numerous large creeks near its mouth.

The dry conditions have done nothing to diminish the fishing in the river since the netters were removed in November 2015.



No funds being spent at all here. This is all volunteer work from individuals trying to save juvenile fish from one of the few last remaining and most important nursery grounds in the region.
