From “success” to carnage – Victoria’s barramundi fish exploits – all for the sake of fishers.

So, about November last year, they put out some barramundi for people to go fishing and called it a great success… (see previous post –

I can predict these animals will develop skin sores and fungal infections, and all die out before long.
