100 tagged barra worth $10k each!

The Million Dollar Fish Season 2 kicks off across the Top End in October this year (2016), this time with 100 tagged barra worth $10,000 each.
“In addition to a million-dollar fish, 100 other fish will be tagged with $10,000 prizes, up from 75 in the first event,” said NT Chief Minister Adam Giles.
If you don’t already know, this Northern Territory promotion involves the release of tagged barramundi across the Top End.
In Season 1 the fish were worth $10k each, and 10 of them were caught!
One fish was worth $1 million, but it eluded capture.
Hotspots for the capture of the tagged fish in Season 1 were Darwin Harbour and the Daly River, but they are released in waterways right across the Top End.
