Townsville City Council purchased a 1300L Fish
Transporter designed for fish rescues and the transportation of
fingerlings for fish restocking programmes. The 1200mm x 1500mm
tank is able to transport fingerlings long distances. The detachable
lid makes it easy to transport large fish in need of rescue in the
event of water quality decline.
Twin Cities Fishstocking Society and the Cungulla
Fishing Club put the Fish Transporter to its first test when they
transported 12,000 50-70mm Barramundi fingerlings from Bluewater
Barramumdi Mourlyan Harbour to the Haughton River in October 2005.
It was a great success, as can be seen by the photos showing Twin
Cities Fishstocking Society and the Cungulla Fishing Club delivering
the fingerlings into the Val Bird and Giru Weirs as part of the
Haughton fish stocking programme.

Transporter please contact:
