FIVE MILLION MORE REASONS TO GO FISHING IN NSW

Minister for Primary Industries, Katrina Hodgkinson, said the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government has released more than 5.6 million fingerlings, including a record 413,000 bass, into lakes, dams and rivers across the State this past year.
Ms Hodgkinson said 2.7 million native fish and 2.9 million trout and salmon have been released under the NSW Government’s freshwater stocking programs in 2013 and 2014.

“The NSW Government is committed to supporting the one million recreational fishers and regional communities through State-wide freshwater fish stocking programs,” Ms Hodgkinson said.
“These fingerlings have boosted fish stocks across inland NSW ensuring our fish populations remain strong and continue to be enjoyed by everyone.
“These fish releases provide huge benefits for regional areas by boosting tourism and providing economic opportunities for regional economies.
“The NSW Government’s Port Stephens Fisheries Institute has produced and stocked a record number of 413,000 bass into 22 dams across the State, including Toonumbar Dam, Glenbawn Dam, Lake Lyell and Tallowa Dam.

“Successful production of native fish was also achieved at the Narrandera Fisheries Centre, with the highlight being 526,500 Murray Cod stocked into dams from Pindari Dam in the north to Blowering Dam in the south.

“The Gaden Trout Hatchery in Jindabyne produced brown trout, rainbow trout, Atlantic salmon and brook trout and Dutton Trout Hatchery in Ebor produced brown trout and rainbow trout for fishers to enjoy throughout the New England, Central Tablelands, Southern Highlands, Monaro and Snowy Mountains regions.”

Ms Hodgkinson said production of fish at the four NSW Government hatcheries and at commercial hatcheries, through the dollar-for-dollar program, is supported by funds from the NSW Recreational Fishing Trusts.
“In addition to the freshwater stocking program, this summer the DPI will also stock more than four million Eastern king prawns in estuaries up and down the NSW coast for the first time,” Ms Hodgkinson said.

The fingerlings stocked in inland waters in NSW will be fully grown and able to be fished in two to three years’ time.

Meanwhile in QLD .................. No More Setlines, more changes to come ? A slot size and possession limit for Murray Cod in line with NSW would be sensible you would think.

That's probably the most embarrassing omission from QLD fishing regs. Just confirms our redneck status amongst the other states.

How long have the other states had their cod closed seasons enacted in legislation for now?
