Djenj (Fish)


We always go fishing for lots of fish, big and small. Good ones we eat, bad ones we don’t. We eat fish that live in freshwater and saltwater. The fish we catch and eat here in the freshwater have many different names, such as “Namarnkol” (barramundi) which is an important fish for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people to catch and eat.
