Deniliquin will host IFISH television presenter Paul Worsteling while he films a fishing adventure on the Edward River.By Cass Savellis
IFISH television presenter Paul Worsteling will make the trip to Deniliquin starting this weekend.
Murray Catchment Management Authority catchment officer - water Dr John Conallin and Deniliquin RSL Fishing Club member Ian Fisher have been working on plans to bring the program to Deniliquin for some time.
Mr Worsteling was originally expected to film in Deniliquin last March, but the local flood forced the cancellation.
He and the IFISH crew will be filming segments for season eight of the show, which will air later in the year.
‘‘Paul will be in town for one week filming in the district to make shows on Murray cod as part of the next IFISH season,’’ said Mr Fisher.
‘‘This is a project myself and Dr John Conallin have been working on for about four years.’’
Dr Conallin said the purpose of the visit was to showcase the Edward-Wakool water system and the research that has been put into managing the river.
‘‘We will discuss how research is used to inform management of river systems, such as the population of Murray cod,’’ Dr Conallin said.
‘‘This also feeds back into community aspirations; if there are an abundance of fish to catch then tourism in the town will increase.
‘‘Therefore how we manage the river has economic, social and environmental incentives and benefits.’’
IFISH crew will also see the success of Deniliquin-based fertiliser company Charlie Carp and how it is benefiting the health of the river.
The crew will be looking at how pests are turned into product through Charlie Carp.
They will also explore the different fishing environments Deniliquin has to offer, from larger parts of the Edward River to smaller areas, and the state of the waterways.
‘‘From a recreational fisher’s point of view, Deni has a lot to offer,’’ Dr Conallin said.
