Did you realise Karumba has the only hatchery in the world which breeds the Southern Gulf strain of Barramundi? The importance of the Barramundi Discovery Centre and hatchery may sometimes be overlooked with the focus on Karumba as a Mecca for recreational fishing - but what a fascinating place to visit. The centre operates as a tourist attraction as well as undertaking the serious side of breeding barramundi for release into the gulf river systems and impoundments. The hatchery is a registered charity and has been operational for 19 years. A visit to the Centre will give you a totally new view on this iconic fish and its special environment of just one tide a day which surrounds Karumba.
