History of Million Dollar Fish

Home to the famous barramundi, the Northern Territory is widely regarded as Australia’s top fishing destination for hooking one of these iconic tropical fish species.

The Million Dollar Fish competition was first introduced in 2015 to boost visitation and to give fishos the chance to reel in prize-tagged barramundi.

Renowned as Australia’s richest fishing competition, Million Dollar Fish continues to grow in size and value with more prize-tagged fish released each year. Barramundi are tagged and released right across the Territory in five main fishing regions including Arnhem Land, Darwin, Kakadu, Katherine and the Tiwi Islands.

Since the competition launched, dozens of fishos from around Australia have cashed in by reeling in tagged barramundi, and hundreds more have won epic prizes from competition partners.

Season 7

Million Dollar Fish Season 7 runs from 1 October 2021 – 31 March 2022. This season there are eight* Red Tagged Million Dollar Fish and 112 x $10,000 Red Tagged Barra up for grabs. Each time a $10,000 barra is caught, the lucky fisho will have the opportunity to donate an additional $1,000 to a Million Dollar Fish Season 7 Official Charity Partner. A further $10,000 will be donated to an Official Charity Partner once the Million Dollar Fish is reeled in.
