Fish the NT.

It’s no secret the Northern Territory is home to some of the best fishing in Australia. For this season of Million Dollar Fish, we released more than 100 prize-tagged barra into five incredible fishing regions, Darwin, Kakadu, Arnhem Land, Katherine and the Tiwi Islands.

A total of 20 red-tagged fish were recaptured in Season 8 and more than 90 prized fish have been claimed since the comp began in 2015, but the elusive Million Dollar Fish is yet to be reeled in by one lucky fisho.

There are now 80+ red-tagged fish worth $1 million in Top End waterways, plus:

  • Less than 20 x 10,000 tagged barramundi
  • Goodies as part of the Lucky Prize Pool
