Not sure that being tank bred they would be welcomed into the wild gene pool?

Hi.

It actually wouldn't be a bad idea.

Net off part of dams with mesh the baitfish can swim through.

Most of stocking is voluntary work.
They probly wouldn't mind doing a bit extra??.

Most of us only let them go again. anyway.
If they'll survive in the wild. It would be doing everybody a favour.

the dam barra grow quicker and are all male so you're not killing a breeder anyway. they need saltwater to change sex and spawn

All big dam barra are males as they need salt water to turn into females.
