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]

Fisheries Officers, Get it off Ya chest!

Dec 04, 2009 - 9:19 AM - by smashed crabs
Gday all

I think it's high time that we the fisho's have a little discussion about our fisheries patrol , i have read alot of post's in here and i would have to say there is a fair bit of negativity towards them.Question Why?

Personaly i think our fisheries do the best they can do with the little they have, i do not think they get the support from most as they rightly deserve , Question Why not?

Have a think about this, rules and regulations are put into action and fisheries officers try to make sure these are being followed, ARSE HOLES dont give a crap and then it is more rules and regulations for the honest fisho's. Each time this happens it's more bitching and carry on resulting in the fisheries officers getting yet another slap in the face.

I can just imagine our officers talking amongst themselves every time there are new reg's that have to inforce, thinking gee they arnt going to like this one !

Cruise ship terminal in the broadwater

Nov 03, 2012 - 11:46 AM - by Fast Break
What does everyone think about the planned cruise ship terminal and development in the Broadwater?

I have been fishing the Broadwater all of my life and I have real concerns about what impact the planned development will have on the area.

My personal thought is why can't they just leave it alone so that the thousands of people who use that area will still have it to use for future generations.

I am concerned that the development will destroy fish habitat including the banks that we use to collect bait and may also affect access to the area.

Just wondering what everyone else thinks.
