Yesterday, Wakool farmer John Lolicato told me about recent fish kills in the southern Riverina. Click here to listen to our conversation: WS450079
The fish kills were caused by black water with tens of thousands of Murray Cod dying over the last four years.
The enormous (1.4 metre long) Murray Cod being held up by two farmers is just one of many large fish found floating in the Lower Wakool River following a black water event last year.
The Wakool is an anabranch of the Murray, click on the map for a better and larger view.
