Net-free fishing zones for Central and North Queensland

Today, The Queensland Government will deliver on its election commitment and move ahead on the implementation of three net-free fishing zones in Queensland before the end of the year.

Officials found five mud crabs and a legal bream onboard, but demanded the boats be taken to the Redlands QBFP station for inspection after suspicions its floor had been modified.


Sixty-nine mud crabs were found inside the secret compartment, of which 58 were either illegally undersized or female.


In addition to the unlawful possession charge, one of the men was charged with obstruction and the other two faced charges of making false and misleading statements about being... [Read More]
