Salties are as keen on fishing as we are and they can smell a potential feed a very long way off. When they are below the surface they close their nostrils so the water doesn’t get in but when they are cruising about hunting they open up their nostrils and start sniffing!
Don’t get lazy when you are out fishing. Those fish frames and fish guts that you throw into the water or on to the bank can be smelt by crocs for up to a kilometre away and they will come looking for an easy feed. The person they find may not be you!
Help to protect others in your community, take all your fishing rubbish home, don’t call out to crocs. www.becrocwise.nt.gov.au
