    Was searching for some good cod photo's via google, and searched and searched, eventually on page 53 of images I saw this!
    Its even labled as a legal sized murray cod, even at the old 50cm mark it would be lucky to be close! Maybe 40cm i reckon.

    you can buy farmed fish that are not obviously required to be of any minimum size, in fact most farmed Cod would be turned out the door at around 50cm if destined for markets & restaurants, so a small Cod on a dinner plate means nada!

    I did think of that, but the way its worded on the site it says,
    "Legal size murray cod heading for the pot"

    This is the exif data on the pic

    Firstly take note of the date

    I'm betting farmed fish , then there's such things as how big that plate really is as there's nothing to gauge it against.

    It is a small fish but without something to gauge it against it could be 50 or above.

    All you need mate is to download an exif viewer , I use firefox as my browser and they have a great exif viewer add on otherwise plenty of free ones on the net. Great thing as you can then see what settings you had for pictures you took or what others have taken

    Exif is basically the settings of the camera for the picture taken

    Cheers
