New addition to Moreton Bay Artificial Reef

Queensland’s recreational fishers are set to benefit from a new addition to the Harry Atkinson Reef, when the Newman Government scuttles a decommissioned boat next week.
The Queensland Government has already established six artificial reefs in Moreton Bay Marine Park, at a cost of $2.25 million.
The motor-less, 60 tonne, 26 metre delivery boat, donated by Port of Brisbane has been degreased and steam cleaned by a professional contractor, and has also had additional materials added to provide extra shelter for fish.

the following is taken directly from the Govt website in regard to the Marine Infrastructure Fund :- The more people enjoy boating in Queensland, the more pressure there is on the capacity of facilities such as boat ramps, pontoons and jetties. Transport and Main Roads owns public boat ramps, pontoons, jetties, floating walkways, barge ramps and wharves throughout Queensland. Transport and Main Roads works in partnership with local government, port authorities and private developers to deliver new and upgraded recreational boating infrastructure for Queenslanders.

New app helps fishers abide by Queensland’s fishing rules

Sep 24, 2014 - 11:35 AM - by Fisheries Queensland
The Fisheries Queensland smart phone app has proved a hit with recreational fishers with more than 5000 downloads recorded since its launch last month. The initial uptake of the app is great news and will lead to reduced confusion over fishing rules and improved fisheries compliance.

The ‘Qld Fishing’ app was developed to provide fishers in Queensland with easy to access and up-to-date information on recreational fishing rules and regulations. It’s like an encyclopaedia of fishing rules in your pocket – the app is available anytime and anywhere.

The app features images of approximately 400 fish species with their description and details of the size and possession limits and closed seasons that apply. Other functionality includes access to... [Read More]
