Nt million dollar fish
Are you still in the NT hoping to get lucky?

The Northern Territory’s cunning plan to persuade grey nomads and other travellers to linger longer appears to be coming together.

The third season of the Million Dollar Fish competition kicked off at the start of this month and already several lucky anglers have reeled in $10,000 barras.

However, the prized and highly sought after $1 Million tagged barramundi is still to be caught.

“The Million Dollar Fish competition is a great initiative that has helped to boost the NT’s reputation as the best place in the world to stay, play and fish and lure more visitors to the Territory during our low season from October to February,” said Tourism and Culture CEO Alastair Shields. “I encourage all anglers and their families to come to the Territory, try their luck at catching the million dollar fish and enjoy our unique tourism experiences while they’re here.”

In total, 101 barramundi have been tagged and released across the Territory with 100 carrying $10,000 cash prize tags.

This year’s competition runs until February 28 and anyone wishing to have a crack at a prize must register at www.milliondollarfish.com.au for their chance to win.
