  Eastern freshwater cod - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Eastern freshwater cod, Maccullochella ikei, also known as eastern cod, are a large and striking predatory freshwater fish of the Maccullochella genus and the Percichthyidae family.
Eastern freshwater cod are sexually mature at 4 or 5 years old, and at sizes as small as 700 g, the latter being markedly different to Murray cod.
Eastern freshwater cod of the Clarence river system may be the parent species of all coastal cod populations including Mary River cod, Maccullochella peelii mariensis, although this is not currently reflected in the taxonomy.

Cape Cod (1033 km²) is an arm-shaped peninsula forming the Easternmost portion of the state of Massachusetts, in the Northeastern United States.
The large area of water enclosed by Cape Cod and the mainland seacoast to the north forms Cape Cod Bay; west of Cape Cod is Buzzards Bay.
Cape Cod is connected to the mainland by a pair of canal-spanning highway bridges from Bourne and Sagamore, and a vertical-lift railroad bridge.

 Murray Cod - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii peelii) is a large and striking predatory freshwater fish of the Maccullochella genus and the Percichthyidae family.
Murray cod continue a pattern present in Murray-Darling native fish genera of speciation in lowland and specialist upland species, with Murray cod being the primarily lowland species and the endangered trout cod being the specialist upland species.
Unfortunately, Murray cod have died out of many of their upland habitats, particularly in the southern Murray-Darling Basin, due to a combination of overfishing, siltation, dams and weirs blocking migration, pollution from arsenic based sheep-dips and mining and possibly, in some cases, competition between juvenile Murray cod and introduced trout species.

Eastern cod are a large, predatory, freshwater fish native to only the Clarence and Richmond Rivers in northern New South Wales, where they were once abundant.
Populations of eastern cod apparently collapsed in the 1920s and 1930s and continued to decline until the 1980s, when the species was protected.
Small scale surveys and anecdotal information suggests that eastern cod numbers are being maintained, and may be recovering, but there has been no rigorous scientific assessment of their abundance.

 Murray Cod
Murray cod were extremely abundant in the past and the species was in fact the most common of the larger native fish in the Murray-Darling system at the time of European settlement.
Unfortunately, Cod have become locally extinct in many small tributaries in which they once abounded, particularly in upland reaches of the southern and central Murray Darling Basin, and the fish is rare in the majority of the rest of its original range.
The importance of Murray cod to aboriginal people of the Murray-Darling basin is reflected by the fact that many groups living along the Murray River made the Murray cod a central animal in their mythology, including their creation stories.

 Chapter 1
Murray cod create enormous public interest in eastern Australia, with many tales of "the one that got away" or "the one that was too big to get into the boat." Thus, the management of Murray cod is not only a conservation issue, but also part of protecting an important aspect of Australia’s cultural heritage.
Although Murray cod is not yet considered endangered in Australia, it is classified to be under threat in some states, and both fish biologists and the wider community have expressed serious concerns about its decline.
Although Murray cod is widely known and sought by anglers, and has been successfully bred in hatcheries for many years, there has been very little study of its ecology (Koehn and O’Connor 1990).

Stuart is a scientist with NSW Fisheries and has conducted research into the taxonomy, biology, conservation and aquaculture of Australian native freshwater fishes for over 25 years.
Stuart studied Australia’s largest and most famous inland fish, the Murray cod; this research lead to a better understanding of the biology of cod and to the implementation of new fisheries management regulations in NSW.
Both species are endangered, and in the 1980’s Stuart ran a conservation project for the eastern freshwater cod at the Grafton Aquaculture Centre.
