Barramundi Finally in Hazelwood

Postby FishnMiss » Tue Apr 19, 2016 11:09 pm

On talking Fishing this evening it was announced that Barra would be released into the Hazelwood dam tomorrow morning but fishing will be off limits for a few months for fisheries to do a study to see how they fare in the pond/lake.
I think there will be a media release tomorrow.

My question is would you actually eat a barra if you caught it out of that water... Obviously if its legal size and all but the looks alone of that water definitely doesn't look too appealing to me. I was there a few weeks back taking out my niece and nephew catching the cichlids that currently reside in there and while I was there kept noticing every so often this black soot layer peeling off the bottom of the pondage and floating on top of the water. No idea what it is but needless to say I wouldn't be eating a barra if I caught one outta there.

I wouldn't be eating them unless some very thorough testing was done on them first.

The reason the water is warm is because it is used in the power station, it has probably picked up all sorts of metals and whatnot from the pipes. Plus there's the soot/smoke from the power station which is some seriously nasty sh*t.
From wikipedia:
Coal and coal waste products (including fly ash, bottom ash and boiler slag) release approximately 20 toxic-release chemicals, including arsenic, lead, mercury, nickel, vanadium, beryllium, cadmium, barium, chromium, copper, molybdenum, zinc, selenium and radium, which are dangerous if released into the environment. While these substances are trace impurities, enough coal is burned that significant amounts of these substances are released


And people complain about windfarms lol

Flathead: 51cm; Squid: 36cm; Australian Salmon: 51cm; Snapper 46cm; Silver Trevally 23cm; KGW: 45cm
