... Murray Cod populations have declined dramatically since white settlement of Australia. Springer-Verlag, Berlin. Approximately 40 and 70% of individuals had been feeding in 2000 and 2001, respectively. Though the cod’s diet is primarily other fish, they are also known to eat birds, reptiles, crustaceans, and rodents. I know they are ment to be a good eating fish but i suppose my actual question is (do 95% of fishermen show massive respect for our giant native river monster) Cheers. Article  These results have the implications for the management of regulated temperate lowland rivers: high flows cannot automatically be assumed to be beneficial for the fish larvae of all species and their food resources, and caution should be exercised with the timing of flow releases. A recent study has confirmed that fish make up the majority of the diet of Murray cod in lowland river and impoundment habitats, and that Murray cod are indeed apex predators in these habitats.

This study investigated the composition of the diet and gut fullness of drifting Murray cod larvae weekly during two spawning seasons with contrasting flows, to determine if pelagic zooplankton comprised a greater proportion of the gut contents and guts were fuller in a high flow (2000) than in a low flow (2001) year.

Balon, E. K., 1984. Proceedings of the Linnaean Society of New South Wales 111: 201–213. The techniques for large scale Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii peelii) fingerling production have been developed over the last 30 years, with fingerlings traditionally produced for restocking public and private waters. The Murray Cod (Maccullochella peelii) is a species of fish in the genus Maccullochella. & J. Harker, 1977. Density and distribution of potential prey for larval fish in the main channel of a floodplain river: pelagic versus epibenthic meiofauna.

Murray Cod were once severely fished, and the IUCN now lists them as a Critically Endangered species. Koehn, J. D. & D. J. Harrington, 2005. Factors affecting the early life history of yellow perch, Perca flavescens. The carcass lipid content reflected that of the diets, when significant increases in the lipid content was observed in relation to dietary lipid content at both protein levels.

Development of techniques for the large-scale rearing of the larvae of the Australian freshwater fish golden perch, Macquaria ambigua (Richardson, 1845). & R. G. Werner (eds), Fisheries Science: The Unique Contributions of Early Life Stages. feeding stock an appropriate diet According to DPI aquaculture scientist Brett Ingram, "...actively removing factors which cause stress to the fish – whether it be from inappropriate food, inappropriate water quality, the presence of parasites or a disease – Murray cod farmers will improve their production rates and quality of their produce. Gut fullness increased with declining yolk reserves. Together they form a unique fingerprint. This study investigated the composition of the diet and gut fullness of drifting Murray cod larvae weekly during two spawning seasons with contrasting flows, to determine if pelagic zooplankton comprised a greater proportion of the gut contents and guts were fuller in a high flow (2000) than in a low flow (2001) year.

Overview of the history, fishery, biology and aquaculture of Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii peelii). Why do so most fish produce so many tiny offspring? Researchers have hypothesised that influxes of pelagic zooplankton to river channels after floods and high flows are necessary for strong recruitment of some native fish species, including Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii peelii) (Mitchell), in the Murray–Darling river system, Australia. Cod is an excellent source of protein, selenium, and vitamin B12.
