View Full Version : Extended stay on fraser, how many fish can u keep?

26-09-2005, 04:07 PM
Just trying to make sure i aint gunna get busted up there with too many fish, question is , how many fish can you keep at ur campsite if your staying for a week? I.e if i bag out each day can i keep them all at campsite freezer? That legal?



Does anyone have a document or a link to the regs for fish in that area? i.e list of general reef fish, limits and sizes?

Wow, so that means for 9 days i can only keep 5 reds?? for example..

Wow, wat a bonus... the dpi are very generous these days arnt they >:( Too bad if i wanted to feed my family or friends with some fish, barely have enough for myself.

Oh well, i guess its good that the pros are allowed to rape the place and us rec fishos arnt, hell we dont spend much money on this sort of trip ::) .

You can eat as many as you like while there and those limits are per person, if you travel with 3-4 guys that adds up to a swag of fish, if you take home 20 good coral fin thats around 20kg of boned out fillets, throw in a couple of cobes and some snappa etc and you could take home 30kg of fillets each, dont worry its a good feed I assure ya.

yeah i didnt realise it was per person, that is ok. Sounds good when u put it that way Rob! Thanks for all the info, keep me out of trouble ;)

Not 100% sure but think you can keep more than the normal quota for Tailor if your staying on the Island more than 4 days. :o Please check first. ;)

Hey Anyfish,

Just remember that there is a closed season on Coral Reef Fin fish during your trip. #For 2005 the dates are:

27 September to 5 October
27 October to 4 November
25 November to 3 December

However, this only applies to waters east of Cape York between 1041 south and 2450' south but that would include the very northern end of Fraser.

Have a good trip,

yep thanks mate
i hope to find something south of 24.50. i have never been out there before so it should be a good learning curve
cheers anyfish
