New fish podcast available

By Rodney Woods

Recreational and commercial fishers, growers, seafood consumers and people who simply love Victoria's waterways can now tune in to the Victorian Fisheries Authority’s new fortnightly podcast, The Poddy Mullet.

VFA chief executive officer Travis Dowling said listeners would get a genuine, behind-the-scenes peek into the fascinating work of fisheries scientists, managers, growers and experts.

“We want to share the amazing stories up close and personal by recording candid conversations about what’s going on in Victoria’s aquatic backyard,” Mr Dowling said.

The Poddy Mullet is another meaningful way for us to connect with our stakeholders, complementing our significant social media presence which is widely considered a national leader amongst fisheries agencies.”

The first episode, which is now available, features Victorian Fishing and Boating Minister Jaala Pulford and Travis Dowling explaining how phase two of Target One Million is making Victoria an even better place to wet a line with family and friends.

Episode two will be with Steve Vidler, from the Snobs Creek hatchery, who will talk about how native fish, including the iconic Murray cod, are bred and grown to a size for release into our lakes and rivers.

Episode one of The Poddy Mullet is available now on your favourite podcast app or head to: to listen online.
