    Spearo help needed in getting parrotfish

    Hi fellow Spearos,

    I need help from anyone who can get me some true parrotfish (not venus tuskfish),

    I used to spearfish in my prime of youth but 52 and my lungs are not as elastic as they have been.

    My boss at uni wants to get some parrotfish frames (with heads and skeleton attached), he is not interested in the flesh (I know I like parrotfish to chew on), was looking at possibly 10.

    Dont ask me why he wants it for or what type of study, I have no idea as to reason why, maybe its just a comparison study on bone growth to other species of fish. He is an Academic and not a practical person.

    I reside in Brisbane so I'm looking fpr a spearo that covers say Mooloolaba down to Tweed Heads or within the area.

    If anyone can help me out on this quest It would be appreciated.

    If you do get them can you store them on ice please and I'll collect them asap.

    Please send me a pm whenever possible.

    Cheers, Peter

    What type of parrot do yuo want. We have heaps of surf and blunt heads up here in Bowen as well the odd big napolean. We usually don't shoot em as they as pretty poor on the chew.

    G'day Devocean.

    I don't know what type of parrot as long as its a true parrot.

    Probably is the surf and blunt head type.

    I can ask what type he needs.

    Driving up to Bowen to collect them might be interesting though. Maybe might have to get some dry ice and send them down in a foam box.

    If you can get these, let me know how much it will cost to send them down.

    Cheers, Peter

    BigE,

    Relax mate, you're reading too much into this and this has nothing to do with conservation or other crap or fisheries restriction bullshit. It's looking at skeletons, bones etc

    Chill out and relax and have another beer

    BigE, Move on from this .....I don't know if you're an antogonist or just like to make an issue out of something (Scaremonger or stirmonger) that has no bearing on what you are trying to convey to the fishing community.

    The one's I believe you are refering to are generally called Surf Parrot. There are the smaller orange and blue females and the larger Multi coloured (purple, green bue and pink) males. Highly rated on my dinner table. Sounds like the fisho's dont get em often and while the spearo's can, they cotton onto been shot and steer clear. Esp places like the sunny coast, you won't get near em unless you dive a more remote area. And with the weather the way it is... well self explanitry.

    Waterbouy,

    Yep, you're on the mark.

    I dont expect anyone to go out when conditions are bad, I use to be a spearo myself for a number of years and I go out when conditions are favourable. Since my lungs are not elastic as they use to be (yeah, I don't smoke either). I find it difficult to freedive these days.

    Might have to broaden the request range but I'm limited to how far I can drive to collect specimens. my supervisor is broke so the money is coming out of my pocket and I don't get reimbursed.

    Cheers

    Why not just ask the Adreno crew? They would be more than happy to organise
