Unknown what caused death of barras found by anglers

FOURTEEN dead and dying barramundi were a sombre discovery for fishermen on the Boyne River last week.

"We counted 14 barramundi up to the one-metre mark, with one in excess of one metre, which was still alive but very sick," Richard Ibbotson said.

"I'm always concerned by mysterious fish kills."

Several reports were lodged to the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection, although testing of the fish could not be done.

"Due to the level of decomposition of these fish, testing was not able to be undertaken to determine a cause of death," a department spokesperson said.
