Tagged bass recaptured after 22 years

Comments Comments
A tagged bass in Queensland has been recaptured after 22 years.

ALMOST 22 years ago in 1996 a 300 mm long Australian bass was tagged in Lake Somerset, Queensland. Recently it was recaptured in Lake Wivenhoe, also in Queensland, at a length of 450 mm. Sometime in between it has gone over the Somerset dam wall.

The photo is not of the actual fish but one of a similar size...it makes you wonder just how old the fish is?
