AN enthusiastic group gathered at Sandy Beach, Dubbo on Sunday, January 13, for the release of $16,000 worth of native fingerlings into the Macquarie River.

Organisers from the Inland Waterways Rejuvenation Association (IWRA) were particularly proud of reaching the major milestone of 10,000 fingerlings since the annual release began.
Funds for the program are raised from the IWRA’s Lake Burrendong Fishing Classic, which in 2012 saw 1079 competitors come together over the long weekend.
Members of the IWRA are now looking forward to similar fundraising efforts during 2013, with proceeds to be used for further native fish release programs and also for promoting sustainability along our river.
