On Sunday 10th January, 2016 145,000 Golden Perch (Yellow belly) Fingerlings were released into Lake Samsonvale. The Fingerlings were released via the scatter method and to achieve this, 18 Electric Powered Vessels distributed the fingerlings to different areas around Lake Samsonvale. Special Aerated Tanks were developed for 8 vessels and the remaining vessels had their own acceptable aeration tanks.

The Fingerlings were supplied by Hanwood Fish Hatchery – Murgon – In an excellent condition.

46 Volunteers took part to ensure the success of the release. The outstanding efforts of the Volunteers will ensure a much greater survival rate for the Fingerlings than if they were all released in one spot.
