Registrations for Season 9 are open now!

The odds of catching the Million Dollar Fish have never been better! Season 9 kicked off on 1 October 2023 and will run until 31 March 2024 and there are plenty of ways to win.

This season we released two barra carrying a million-dollar tag and 100 barra carrying $10,000 tags. However, as part of our Merry Fishmas campaign we upgraded a $10,000 fish to a million-dollar fish. Combined with the million-dollar fish released from Seasons 1 – 8, which all remain active for Season 9 – there are now 12 fish worth a million bucks!

Tagged barra have been released across the Top End’s five main fishing regions – Darwin, Kakadu, Arnhem Land, Tiwi Islands and Katherine.

For every $10,000 fish caught, an additional $1,000 will be donated to one of the official Million Dollar Fish Season 9 Charity Partners.

Make sure you’re signed up!

Million Dollar Fish also features a Lucky Prize Pool. Just by registering, participants have the chance to win great prizes as part of the Random Prize Draw every month.
