Australian Fish God

The God of Cod, and Codfather of Fishing

One day he was chasing this huge cod all over the land, because that’s where it lived at the time. The cod was so immense it gouged out a channel as it writhed to escape. This later became the course of the Murray river.

Our Godly hunter caught up with it on the sea shore, chopped it into pieces, gave them names and threw them into the sea, where they all swam away as different fish. So this was the very first Cod Quota.
