Murray Cod SculpturePrint Page Print this page

The marble sculpture depicts a ‘breeding pair’ of Murray Cod – an ‘apex’ species of the Murray-Darling river system and acknowledges the 30 years worth of volunteer work – and Murray Cod fingerlings – put into the Condamine River locally by the Warwick District Recreational Fish Stocking Association.

The sculpture was funded by the Southern Downs Regional Council and the Queensland Government

The stretch of the Condamine near the O.O. Madsen Bridge has been a major focus of the Fish Stocking Association since 2013, and is now known as the ‘Warwick Murray Cod Rehabilitation Reach’, with ‘habitat structures’ in place to encourage Murray Cod breeding.
