CONGRATULATIONS CANCELLED Minister McVeigh Fisheries Review

Apr 02, 2014 - 11:28 AM - by Macks forever
Unfortunately it seems I jumped the gun.

I have just seen an email identifying the glaring flaws in the Qld Fisheries Review.

I previously raised concerns about getting a truly independent reviewer. It appeared Minister McVeigh considered this worthy and stated it would be independent. I gave him credit for that.
Then the invitation to tender went out.

Would you believe the tender document states that all tenders have to be in by 11am on the 7th April?

To quote from the email:

High price to pay for refusing a routine inspection

A commercial fisher has been convicted and fined $12,000 and had his commercial fisher licence suspended for two months after pleading guilty to two obstruction charges in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court.

“Officers approached the trawler with the intention of conducting a routine inspection,” Mr Hohenhaus said.

“The master of the vessel became verbally abusive and physically obstructive by not allowing officers to conduct an inspection of the vessel including its freezer.

“He was of the opinion that we required his permission to be on... [Read More]

Proposal to allow recreational fishing at Scotts Point


Recreational anglers could soon be able to wet a line at Scotts Point on the Redcliffe Peninsula, under a proposal to change marine park zoning.


Premier Campbell Newman said he wanted to change the zoning of the first 100 metres of the existing Scotts Point marine national park zone to allow recreational fishing from the shore.


“The current zoning deprives families of the pleasure of fishing from the shoreline at Scotts Point,” Mr Newman said.


“Many Redcliffe locals have told us they want to use the shoreline at Scotts Point for recreational fishing, so we’re now consulting more... [Read More]

It seem rec-anglers are in the news again

It seems rec-anglers are in the news again, and for the wrong reasons.
Perhaps a storm in a tea cup and like the story says nothing illegal, but it's still bad publicity that anti fishing groups will seize and run with.
The story made quite a few newspapers and the tv news.
