Congratulations to Shane Bardsley on his cracker brown trout caught from Lake Bullen Merri as this weeks Catch of the Week.
Dr Corey Green from the Victorian Fisheries Authority will present his most recent research on Calamari and Cuttlefish. Corey has been tracking calamari around Port Phillip Bay for several years now and when it comes to knowledge and science of these species, there is no better expert than Dr Corey Green. Corey will also hopefully shed some light on why there has been an influx of cuttlefish into our bay and tell us why this season seems to be a bumper year. This is one talk not to be missed!
