“The eastern cod has been listed as ‘endangered’ under both the (Commonwealth) Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 and the (NSW) Fisheries Management Act 1994.

Eastern cod are a large, predatory, freshwater fish native to only the Clarence and Richmond Rivers in northern New South Wales, where they were once abundant. Although similar to the Murray cod, they are a separate species. Populations of eastern cod apparently collapsed in the 1920s and 1930s and continued to decline until the 1980s, when the species was protected. Wild eastern cod are now thought to be found only in the Mann and Nymboida river systems, tributaries of the Clarence River. Small scale surveys and anecdotal information suggests that eastern cod numbers are being maintained, and may be recovering, but there has been no rigorous scientific assessment of their abundance.”
