Barra Off Limits...

Barra off limits: Gulf of Carpentaria
October 7, 2015 at 9:50am - Fisheries Queensland



Fishers are being reminded that barramundi will be off limits in the Gulf of Carpentaria from noon 7 October 2015 until noon 1 February 2016.

Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol district officer Anthony Loader said the closure was in place to protect barramundi stock during their vulnerable spawning season.

"Barramundi typically aggregate in one area to spawn, making them more vulnerable to predators and fishing pressure,” he said.

“Closed seasons allow stocks to replenish to ensure there are healthy fish stores for current and future generations of Queenslanders.

"It's important that barramundi are not targeted for catch and release during a closed season as the stress of capture may actually prevent the fish from spawning.”

Mr Loader said QBFP officers would be out patrolling Queensland waters over the spawning season.

"Officers conduct regular patrols during closed seasons and those found doing the wrong thing are risking an on-the-spot fine of $471 and a maximum penalty of $110,000," he said.

“QBFP rely on the support of the public to help protect our fishing resources for future generations.

"People who suspect illegal fishing are urged to do the right thing and report it to the Fishwatch hotline on 1800 017 116."

A barramundi closure will also apply in Queensland’s east coast waters from midday 1 November 2015 to midday 1 February 2016. Sorry, only registered users can see this content. Please Login or Register.
