    Certainly looks like state labour didn't learn much from the Fed labour election lessons

    Yep. Yet again, the token effort of public consultation makes an absolute mokery of the process. They already knew what they wanted and were going to implement it anyway.

    Does anyone know what the maximum allowable (commercial) take for snapper and pearlies was prior to these changes?

    There was no TAC previously and this change will see a reduction of around 30% in the commercial Snapper and Pearl Perch take from previous years.

    There wasn't any.
    Oops, didn't see Aussies post. The govt wanted to introduce them back in 2008 but the commercial sector put up all sorts of claims about managing the fisheries themselves. Had to happen eventually.

    Going by the new regs you can take 2 times the per person limit if your in a boat by yourself as i have read it 2 times the limit per boat it doesnt state the number of fishers in the boat ,it should have read no more than 2 times the limit when more than 2 fishers are in a boat the way I see it lol.

    At the end of the day we arenít affected too much by the new regs.
    We now keep 4 bigger pearlies and only take 1 mate fishing at a time for snapper.
    The one month closure has the biggest impact but hopefully giving the snapper and pearlies a month to reproduce during their breeding season should help the population and improve the other 11 months catch rate.

    I think you will need a good lawyer to win that one, boat limits and person limits are enforced, being on your own doesn't mean you can catch the boat limit, trying to twist words is what gets people into trouble.

    I think it has been poorly executed, to enforce the new regs on the same day they are released but not having updated material available for everyone including those who don't have internet access is always asking for trouble.
    I see they have restricted areas on the Coomera river but are still yet to have any maps showing the restricted areas at all.

    As much as I dislike the idea of not being able to fish for snapper for a few weeks and being limited to 8 snapper on the boat, I am hoping this will come out as positive for me as I will be pushed to better target other species which I normally wouldn't spend the time.

    The other nuisance is the crab pot tags, I regularly share pots with my father. From what I can see, I will just put multiple tags on each pot for anyone who might use it.
