Fishing in Papua New Guinea

Barramundi capital of the world...

Papua New Guinea's oceans and reefs are teeming with marinefishing_2.jpg
life of every shape and size - divers believe there are more fish per cubic metre in our waters than in any other body of water in the world. Yet surprisingly, there are relatively few native freshwater species and most edible fish species like carp and tilapia have been introduced.

The exception to this is found in the Southern Fly area of the Western Province, home to Bensbach Wildlife Lodge and the mighty 'barammundi'. Here, the barramundi grow enormous and the fishing is world renowned. The "catch and fishing_1.jpgrelease" program run by the lodge gives avid fisherman the opportunity to catch this magnificent fighting fish in great numbers. The rivers also teem with Tarpon and Saratoga.

Only what is needed for that night's dinner is kept and the lodge's menu features freshly caught Barramundi along with venison from local hunters.

As this area also boasts a great variety of wildlife and migratory birds, this is a destination that appeals to both to the serious angler and avid naturalist.

Contact us for bookings and for more information on the superb fishing at Bensbach Wildlife Lodge.
