The Mary cod star on DVD

THE 150th meeting of the Mary River Catchment Co-ordinating Committee was the opportunity for Federal Member for Wide Bay Warren Truss to officially launch the Goorievision DVD on the life of the iconic Mary River cod.

In a short address Mr Truss praised the MRCCC for getting work done 'on the ground' to help conserve the river's iconic species.

Luke Barrowcliffe from Goorievision said the production was delayed because of the cod's 'unwillingness' to co-operate with spawning cycles.

Delegates at the MRCCC meeting were able to watch a 15-minute segment of the film that allowed insights into many aspects of the Mary River cod's life and unique habitat.
