Operations target illegal fishers
25 October 2013 - NSW DPI


“A number of patrols were also conducted across inland waters during the long weekend. Fisheries officers from Bathurst and Dubbo conducted patrol activities along the Lachlan and Macquarie Rivers and Lake Cowal.

“A number of fishers were apprehended including a commercial fisher and a recreational fisher at Lake Cowal for failing to mark their set yabby traps correctly, a 60 year old man from Pomona in NSW in possession of yabbies carrying ova (eggs) externally and a 36 year old man from Euabalong West in possession of 9 excess lines in his vessel.”

Fisheries Officers also found and seized 10 illegal fish traps on a property near Kiacatoo downstream of Condobolin, and will continue to target offenders using this illegal equipment.

Other seizures include 10 fish traps, 9 rigged lines, 2 Murray Cod (52cm and 53cm in length) and 1 Silver Perch.

“Fishers should be aware that the use of excess lines and fish traps are prohibited in NSW and that heavy penalties apply,” Mr Tritton said.

“Fishers are also reminded to pay the NSW Recreational Fishing Fee and ensure they carry a valid receipt (fishing licence) with them at all times while fishing, diving or collecting or face a $200 on the spot fine, or a penalty of $75 if you do not have the licence in your immediate possession.”
