Fishing in the Northern Territory’s pristine waters is about to get more exciting than ever, with a lucky angler guaranteed to win a whopping one million dollars in the upcoming Season 9 of Million Dollar Fish (MDF).
It’s the biggest news since the country’s richest fishing competition began in 2015.
Over the years, hundreds of tagged barramundis have been released into the Top End’s incredible fishing regions. More than $925,000 has been won to date, but a million-dollar barramundi is yet to be caught.
That’s all set to change this season, with a number of initiatives planned to ensure someone bags a big one. To maintain the integrity of the competition, details will be released as the season progresses, with the first initiative to be revealed in time for the start of Season 9 on 1 October 2023. Anyone keen to try their luck should follow the MDF social channels and register for Season 9 from tomorrow, for free.
MDF is delivered by Northern Territory Major Events Company (NTMEC) on behalf of the Northern Territory Government and underwritten by SportsBet. NTMEC CEO Suzana Bishop said independent research from last season shows the importance of the competition to the Northern Territory.
