    It's like the internet - if it's in colour, it's true. If it's in black and white, it's probably bullshit

    This is the article the OP posted.
    There is also more info in the link in the article and here is a link to the fisheries website. https://www.daf.qld.gov.au/business-...heries-reforms
    And here is the Qld government press release from the fisheries website. http://statements.qld.gov.au/Stateme...-a-step-closer

    These aren't due to be implemented until September but there will be another opportunity for people to have a say on them in April.

    EXPLAINED: The reforms set to change fishing in Queensland

    COMMERCIAL and recreational fishing ventures will be subject to sweeping reforms being proposed by the State Government to come into effect in September.


    The reforms will be the next step towards a world-class management system under the Queensland Sustainable Fisheries Strategy according to Fisheries Minister Mark Furner who said the current trajectory of fishery management had been unsatisfactory and was in need of an overhaul.
    "The overwhelming message from stakeholders to a number of reviews since 2014 is that fisheries management must change," Mr Furner said.
    "Doing nothing is not an option when the current system is not working.
    "
    The commercial focus points mean the trawl fishing industry can expect to see the Queensland east coast broken down into five management regions, based on key target species.Trawlers can also expect re-distribution ofquotas according to the proposed regions based on catch history and vessel tracking.An individual quota system will be implemented for commercial ventures targeting priority species including barramundi, king threadfin, grey mackerel, school mackerel and whiting, which often become subject to the black market trade.
    Reducing by-catch, which occurs in all sectors is also a focus of the proposal.
    By-catch occurs when fish or other marine species are caught unintentionally while fishing for another targeted species and is common during commercial net fishing.
    To combat this, fisheries will look to mandate by-catch reduction devices and establish a management practice program which could result in temporary closure of zones if triggers are reached for protected species.

    The fisheries overhaul will also impact recreational anglers.
    A 20 fish limit on all fish (bait fish excluded) that currently have no limits in place will be implemented.
    Fisheries will also consider recreational boat limits for priority species however, charters will be excluded from these measures.
    Changes to recreational and commercial mud and blue swimmer crab quotas are outlined in the proposalA recreational boat limit for mud crabs will be considered.
    Crabbers can expect abandoned crab pot clean ups and possible prohibition of lightweight crab pots

    Hmmm, on face value, it doesn't sound too bad. Depends on what they consider as a reasonable boat limit.

    Reads like they are bringing in the commercials under the microscope with set zones and quote""An individual quota system will be implemented for commercial ventures targeting priority species""" ......that will be a hit for them...... and for the recreationers " 20 fish limit on all fish' is reasonable im thinking but the mystery of the boat limits for priority species will be the one that gets peoples blood boiling, Imagine and they could say anything like this """ only one coral trout per boat per day""" you never know..

    This is from the press release in the link above.
    Consider recreational boat limits for black marketing priority species (e.g. barramundi, black jewfish, coral trout, Spanish mackerel)
