In a nut shell you cant... legally.
Only cod coming in in bulk will be illegals.
If you want to bring them in they will cost you about $2.50 each + $100 freight. Ausyfish in Qld are the best option imo. If you do bring them in they will come over with qantas freight and you will need to make a booking with quarantine to inspect them just after arrival..
legally you need a translocation permit for them and possibly an aquaculture permit.
Given recent finds of cod in WA waterways I reckon fisheries will be trying to make an example of someone ASAP. Not great news for you but hope that helps.

Also, ive never had them in AP but I have kept bulk murray cod fingerlings before and to be honest I fail to see how it could be done successfully. Growth rates vary too much... this means aggression isnt really the main problem but rather outright predation is.

i think the only way would be to have divided sections in your pond.... pbass can be the same too... eat their brothers and sisters with not even a blink of an eyelid....

Thanks for the info. Looks like Barra it is then!

Just stocked the system with a few 15cm Barra today.

15cm barra this early should be a fair size by March/April. Put some pics up as they grow. Its awesome to see AP set ups.
