    As a regular visitor to the clarence area the addition of the 30th haven is great to see. In my opinion qld fisheries should be following suit with similar rec only areas in moreton bay, hervey bay, jumpinpin area, major rivers etc and if this requires a saltwater licence so be it. $20 or $30 per year is a small amount to pay for the benefits the licence revenue will provide, assuming, however, that the money is spent appropriately (pro licence buy backs, habitat regeneration, size/bag limit enforcement, public education on marine associated issues etc). One thing I noticed while reading the NSW fisheries info page was that pros are eligible for up to $20 000 for relocation, retraining and depreciation. I am hoping this does not mean relocating their commercial fishing operations to another area. I assume it means relocation and retraining in another industry/job. It would make no sense if they are pulling up their nets from the rec only area and putting them in elsewhere, whilst taking the money. Maybe someone can clear this up for me?

    Sunfish has submitted applications to Queensland Fisheries Service for 6 ROFA's (Recreational Only Fishing Areas). These were put together by Sunfish Branches through extensive consultation with local rec fishers.
    QFS does not know what to do with them. Some will ask where does the money come from. We pay a PPV levy on our boat rego of $12 per boat. You should be asking QFS what has happened to it since 1995.

    Did read them (normal disclaimer) and what the map doesn't show the words make a little clearer. Sounds like the $ has been devalued again

    The following areas will be closed
    1) Middle Wall - a 2 kilometre stretch at the Clarence River mouth near Yamba (hauling during the mullet travelling season - April to August - will still be permitted in this area).
    2) Romiaka Bridge - waters adjacent to the Romiaka Channel Road Bridge, just outside Yamba.
    3) Oyster Channel Bridge - waters adjacent to Oyster Channel Road Bridge, near Yamba.
    4) Entrance of Saltwater Inlet - a 300 metre stretch of River on the eastern side of North Arm, between Arris Island and Saltwater Inlet, near Iluka.
    Cheers, Kerry.
