True Tales of the Trout Cod and other Australian Native Fish

True Tales of the Trout Cod Booklets

The True Tales Catchment booklets are written by Will Trueman and combine oral history and science to investigate the changes to native fish populations in parts of the Basin. Each booklet has a particular focus on the Trout Cod, a fish that is intriguing to many and has little known about it. Will combines his piscatorial knowledge with stories, science, newspaper articles, fishing records and historic photographs to produce beautifully written insights into the rivers, fish and people of the Murray-Darling Basin.
