Complete our survey to help improve the Murray cod fishery and fishing experience

Do you love Murray cod fishing? So do we, and we want to make it even better for everyone and protect this iconic fishery for the future. 

To do this, VRFish  (the Victorian Recreational Fishing Peak Body) is asking for your help in completing our survey. Your response to our survey will contribute to our understanding of the Murray cod fishery and as well as current fish handling practices and values. This will assist us to better educate and inform anglers and help ensure a sustainable and healthy Murray cod fishery for future generations.

All information you provide in the survey will be kept confidential and your identity will not be matched against your responses. Only aggregated results will be published. A copy of the findings of the research will be made available once complete.

The survey has 22 short questions and should taken no more than 5 minutes to complete. We encourage all those over 18 who fish for Murray cod to participate in the survey – whether you are an avid fisher and fish regularly or only fish occasionally.
