What does luxury mean in 2022? At Aquna, we believe luxury is about quality over quantity, sustainability, health and innovation … and experimenting.
Murray Cod Reel of Fortune participant, Corowa’s Mark Williams, has snapped up the competition’s sought-after Goodwill Fish, pocketing $5000 personally and donating an additional $5000 in prize money to his charity of choice within the Murray-Darling Basin system.
Mark, who tagged the winning cod near Narrandera while visiting his parents in the region, has selected OzFish Unlimited as the beneficiary of his angling efforts. The not-for-profit organisation supports recreational fishers to protect and restore fish habitats.
The $5000 injection of funds from Mark’s winning catch has helped OzFish establish the Murray Cod Reel of Fortune restoration project, which will provide vital homes and feeding grounds for native fish.
OzFish provides a way for the recreational fisher community to get active in habitat protection and restoration because they know more than anyone that there are fewer fish in our rivers, estuaries and reefs than ever before.
For Mark, it’s a chance to give back to a worthwhile project.
“Who would have thought I’d be lucky enough to tag-and-release a winning fish and be in a position to help a local charity like OzFish Unlimited install six large, woody habitats into the Murrumbidgee River near Yanco in New South Wales. It makes me very happy,” Mark said.
The project will get underway on Friday, 23 July 2021.
