005Recently the Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries visited the Obi Obi Creek with electro-fishing equipment in an attempt to find and take genetic material from resident Mary River Cod populations. Large deep pools are considered ideal habitat for Cod and sites on Beechwood and above Kings Lane Weir were checked. Unfortunately there was no trace of Cod found. This does not necessarily mean there are no Cod in the Obi, however hopefully in the future can be released into various sites on the waterway.
