    $2000 fine for undersize/overlimit fishing session

    http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au...-anglers-2000/

    WHAT some might think was a good day out fishing turned sour for two Sunshine Coast recreational fishermen yesterday.
    They were fined $2000 after returning home with their 35-fish catch.
    Ten of the fish were undersized, and the catch was over the limit.
    Queensland Boating and Fisheries officers inspected the catch on board a 23-foot vessel as it returned to Mooloolaba.
    They found 23 snapper, five pearl perch, four amberjack, two tusk fish without their pectoral fins removed, and one teraglin.
    A fisheries spokeswoman said the men had caught 13 more snapper than they were allowed.
    “In addition, they had a total of 10 undersized fish and two coral reef fin fish without their pectoral fins removed,” she said.
    “Of the catch, 23 snapper, four pearl perch and four amberjack were seized and the men were left with the remaining catch. The vessel was not involved in any previous illegal activity.”
    The men received fisheries infringement notices totalling $800 for the undersized fish, another $800 for excess fish, and $400 for failing to remove pectoral fins from coral reef fish.

    May have been and good day out but they got greedy....

    Thats exactly why we have rules, to stop this sort of blatant overfishing.

    Too bad if they were ignorant of the rules - If they didn't know, find out or don't go fishing...

    It will be a while before their bank managers will let them go fishing again...
