    Are Indigenous fishers allowed to take barra in Qld Closed Season?

    I dont mean to stir strife, but was told today after seeing a lad with a bleeding barra that indigenous can take in closed season??
    I cant find any reference to such on the web?

    This was all I could find Odes. Best bet would be to contact fisheries or ring the Fishwatch number - they might know.

    i don't think this is the case. I remember seeing something on the telly a few years back where an elder was advocating that indigenous hunting (outside of already established white man law) should be done in the traditional method (canoe/spear) instead of a modern method tinnie/outboard/rifle/net.

    happy to stand corrected.

    Talked to Fisheries. Bag and size and gender limits do not apply in Qld for indigenous fishers, fishing in their own tribal community area. This means for example, local indigenous in Cooktown area, recognised by local elders etc. as being from that area, are able to take as noted above. So it follows that, say an indigenous person from Bundaberg area comes to fish at Cooktown area, this person does not have the take privileges in that area. Unless of course the local indigenous identify or give approval.
    So thats from the mouth of Fisheries Cairns.

    That's the way it has been explained to me also. Rather a mockery of the laws, similar to how Malcolm Turnbull can reduce the pension based on income and assets but hasn't touched parliamentary pensions.
