Fishes galore

A record number of more than 410,000 estuary perch have been stocked into seven waterways across Victoria, including East Gippsland.
The Gippsland Lakes has been stocked for the second year in a row with 140,000 fingerlings.
At Lake Tyers, 25,000 estuary perch have been released, while 5000 each have been released into both the Bemm River and Snowy River.
Estuary perch are a popular target for fishers and one of a dozen species stocked annually to further improve fishing opportunities in the state’s lakes, rivers and estuaries.
