Damage to wattle trees by bait collectors

Damage to wattle trees by bait collectors
Tasmania Inland Fisheries Service

A recent report to the IFS has highlighted the damage caused by bait collectors looking for wattle grubs.
The damage to road side trees has been reported on the roadsides between Perth and Longford.
This activity is not permitted unless the collector owns the land which the trees are on.
Prosecution for such activity could occur under the Crown Land Act.
The IFS does not condone such bait collection and the willful destruction of trees on public land or land not owned by the collector. Such activity gives a bad name to anglers.
