Labor talking about banning net fishing in Moreton bay

Feb 26, 2015 - 7:00 AM - by Bobpen
The Queensland government's plan to ban net fishing in three areas could put the local seafood industry at risk, commercial fishers say.
Labor has promised net-free fishing areas in Trinity Inlet near Cairns, St Helens Beach near Mackay, and parts of the Capricorn Coast.
The government has proposed talking to commercial and recreational fishers about banning net fishing in Moreton Bay.
A spokesman for Fisheries Minister Bill Byrne says the policy will encourage recreational fishing and have have trickle-down benefits the tourism sector.
He says only small areas are being considered for bans and compensation packages will be offered to fishers.
But the Queensland Seafood Industry Association (QSIA) says net bans will hit the local fishing sector.
"We already import 70 per cent of our seafood and by closing these vast areas of ocean to net fishing we will greatly reduce the availability of local catch," QSIA president Karen Collard told... [Read More]

Fisheries policy and Tilapia when will they learn

Dec 21, 2014 - 11:27 PM - by pachedu
Nothing could be worse than the arrogance of this department during Anna Bligh.
However I am not seeing much change in the attitude under the Neuman government.

I was at Hilliard’s creek next to the baseball park in Ormiston this afternoon having a conversation with 2 youngsters .
I usually take time to talk to people fishing and enjoying nature. The one youngster was fishing and had a few small fish traps. His elder brother had a scooter and had been playing nearby

Along come 2 fishery inspectors earning double overtime on a Sunday to check what is going on.
One had a measure and as the 2 species that abound there are mullet and Tilapia they must have been hoping that they would find that someone had an undersized mullet or an illegal Tilapia.
Fishery policy is a big win for the ferrel fish because if you catch a Tilapia you cannot return it, you cannot keep it and there is nowhere to dispose of it other than to dig up the... [Read More]

QLD Election 2015

As promised, we've collected responses from parties that responded to our election questionnaire. These were LNP, Labor, Greens and PUP, and their policy announcements are attached. Responses from sitting MP's were unfortunately almost non-existent, however if any would like to make relevant late announcements, we'd be happy to distribute them.

Please note, these attachments are copied verbatim, some are extracts from much larger announcements, and these extracts should be read in context.

CAREFISH does not seek to promote, endorse or otherwise any particular political party or ideology, nor are we beholden what-so-ever to any. However, we are happy to pat any candidate or party on the back for job well done (as we see it) when it comes to recreational fishing and marine... [Read More]
