Restocking of the Tenterfield Dam began this week, organised by Michael Davey from OZ Fish.
One hundred large breeding trout, kindly supplied by Peter Selby at Ebor Trout Hatchery, were released into the Dam on Wednesday, 21 October 2020 with another 3,400 to go.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for the Tenterfield Dam. Restocking of the Dam will help species recovery, and allow continuation of fishing events to improve resilience of the community as we emerge from the effects of 2019/2020’s natural disasters.
It is hoped the re-stocking of the Dam will provide a resource into the future which will aid in Tourism and economic growth for the Shire”, announced Mayor Peter Petty.
The new water filtration plant when constructed, will allow Council to open the Dam for recreation and allow the community and tourists a recreational precinct.
