Recreational Fishery Harvest Policies For Murray Cod in Southeast Australia.
Fisheries Research 95.2-3 (2009): 260-67. Print.
This article was written by fish policy experts and it is about the
policies along with Australian recreational fishing. The article states the
impact that fisherman can have on Murray cod numbers in southeast
Australia. It explains how minimum length limits for Murray cod are going to
become a new policy to ensure that the species is not over caught. This
article is also a part of the British Library Serials Database. It is a good
research find for me because it allows me to understand their fishing policies.

Slade Allen-Ankins graduated from La Trobe University with a PHD in
the department of environmental management. This is Allen-Ankins first and
only published writings. In this article, Allen-Ankins describes the science
behind how these fish eat in either clear or murky water. They do test on
juveniles at their earliest years. The result was that these fish eat normal
whether the water is clear or dirty. This is relevant information for my studies

due to the findings of the scientists research explains why these fish are so
aggressive and why they can grow to very large sizes. This is a credible
source for my research because it comes from a database of the U.S. National
Library of Medicine.
Ebner, B. Murray Cod an Apex Predator in the Murray River, Australia. Ecology of
Freshwater Fish 15.4 (2006): 510-20. Print.
B Ebner is a well-known novelist and has many novels published. He is
an Australian writer who has numerous awards for his writing. In this article,
Ebner explains how the aggressive behavior of the Murray cod has allowed it
to become an apex predator in Australias Murray River. With numerous
amounts of food and little competition, this predator continues to rule the
throne in the Murray River. This information will help me determine what
food source the Murray cod enjoy most and how to use it to catch one. This
article is currently in the British Library Serials database.

Print.
This article has four well-known writers that have collaborated their
ideas and knowledge of Murray cod and their migration habits. In this article,
the authors state how local fish harvesters and scientist have come together
to determine the migration habits for these fish. Their work together has
allowed them to practically map cod where ever they are. This information is
incredibly useful to me because it will help me determine where the fish will

be during which time of the year. This is a highly credible source for the
reason being it is located in the database of British Library Serials.
Whiterod, N. S. The Swimming Capacity of Juvenile Murray cod
(Maccullochellapedeelii): An Ambush Predator Epidemic to the Murray-Darlin
Basin, Australia. Ecol. Freshw. Fish Ecology of Freshwater Fish 22.1 (2013):
117-26. Print.
Nick S. Whiterod is an Aquatic Ecologist in Albury, Australia. In his
article he relates Murray cod swimming performances with prey fish and
other predator fish and discovers that these fish do well in any type of
performance based waters. This creates bad news for the other active fish
species due to loss in food or a gain in the outcome of becoming food. This
can create a food epidemic for other fish in the Murray-Darlin basin.
