    No more pectoral fin removal for recreational fishers

    Recreational fishers will no longer be required to remove the pectoral fin from coral reef fin fish and Spanish mackerel from today following changes to Queensland fishing rules.

    Fisheries Minister Craig Wallace said the requirement for recreational fishers to remove the pectoral fin was no longer considered necessary.

    “We had the rule in place to help prevent illegal marketing of coral reef fin fish and Spanish mackerel,” Mr Wallace said.

    “By requiring recreational fishers to remove the pectoral fin, we were seeking to identify people who were selling the whole fish without a commercial licence.

    “Illegal or black marketing is a significant threat to the economic viability of the commercial fishing industry, and it is imperative we continue to target such activity.
    “However, we found that the rule to remove the pectoral fin did not help prevent illegal marketing and by removing it we are reducing the regulatory burden on recreational fishers.

    “The Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol has a number of ways for targeting illegal marketing including onsite inspections of seafood wholesalers.

    “The public can also help by reporting suspected illegal fishing activities to the Fishwatch hotline on 1800 017 116.”

    Re: Australia's Recreational Fishing regulations.

    holy crap!! Where is the rote fundamentalism?? basic common sense now on fin removal for anglers...never thought I would see the day.

    How did this happen?????.....there is a list as long as an orangutangs arm of bastardizing regulations directed at anglers enacted this 12 years, nobody cared at the time, it was a psychopathic hootnholler for those of that government 'type'.

    How can this new common sense regulation repeal actually happen today?, I am now just as confused as I was when the orgy of no social responsibility fundamentalism in fisherys management enacted so many useless and disenfranchising regulations this last decade.

    gotta be something to do with elections or something else self serving??, seriously so confused.... the jack boot brigade within qld regulation just dont rollover and play dead for no reason...confused and flabbergasted, happy for the gift horse obviously but one cannot give credit to anyone repealing regulation that should never, never, never ,never have been mentally possible to consider in the first place.

    Gobsmacked I truly am.

    Barramundi

    Throughout the Queensland east coast, a closed season applies to barramundi from midday 1 November to midday 1 February.
    Throughout the Gulf of Carpentaria and adjoining waterways west and south of the intersection of longitude 142°09'E with the shore at high tide, a closed season applies to barramundi.
    The Gulf of Carpentaria closed seasons for barramundi for 2011-2013 are:

    • midday 4 October 2011 to midday 1 February 2012.

    All following years:

    • midday 7 October to midday 1 February (but possession on boats allowed to midday 17 October).

    It is also prohibited to deliberately target barramundi for catch and release during these closed seasons, as the stress of capture may prevent a fish from spawning.
    See also the section on freshwater closed seasons (barramundi) for information on taking barramundi from some freshwater during the closure.

    and for Freshwater....

    Barramundi

    Throughout the Queensland east coast a closed season applies to barramundi from midday 1 November to midday 1 February, except in and from waterways upstream of Awoonga, Burdekin Falls, Callide, Eungella, Fairbairn, Fred Haigh (Lake Monduran), Kinchant, Koombooloomba, Lenthalls, Peter Faust, Teemburra, Tinaroo and Wuruma dams.
    The Gulf of Carpentaria closed season for barramundi in 2011-2013 is:

    • midday 4 October 2011 to midday 30 January 2012.

    All following years:

    • midday 7 October to midday 1 February (but possession on boats allowed to midday 17 October).

    These closures do not apply in East Leichhardt Dam and Belmore, Corella, Julius and Moondarra lakes, and to waterways upstream of these impoundments.
    A take and possession limit of one barramundi applies during the closed season in all of the 18 lakes and dams mentioned above. The barramundi may be greater than 120 cm. Recreational fishers may continue to fish in the 18 dams and lakes once they have reached their limit of one barramundi.
    Outside of the closed season, in the 18 dams and lakes mentioned above, a take and possession limit of five applies to barramundi that may include one barramundi greater than 120 cm.
    It is also prohibited to deliberately target barramundi for catch and release during these closed seasons, as the stress of capture may prevent fish from spawning.
