I may be mistaken but it appears that there is a Unicorn in this report.

That's a yellaguts. Nothing outstanding about a 610mm golden. 750mm is the yellowbelly magical mark.

There you go I was mistaken, only breezed through it. Pointless waste of time, ego stroking exercise disguised as "citizen science" with no oversight or scientific method applied. But that is just my opinion.

I'm tending to agree.

I tried to extract some "science" from those involved and SEQwater but to no avail.

Yes have one of these "Reports"  on a single species. Only useful things that can be extracted from it is that there is no oversight. The organisation collecting the data has no understanding of the biology of the species. And it would seem no understanding or regard for Fisheries Regulations.

well gee you blokes seem to be not to happy about the tagging of impoundment fish, and while some might not like suntag all that much, it is all we have got.

I have no problem with tagging impoundment fish Andrew, tagged the odd one myself. Several people tagging at that event including you are friends of mine. One of them taught me how to tag fish over 35 years ago. To call it research or science is an entirely different matter.

Infofish/Suntag Dale. I have NPD tagging data up to the overflow/entrainment event of winter 2009 somewhere I think, if not know someone who has. Have my own and others from doing an intensive tagging of entrained fish post event. Attempted to use recaptured fish post event against total tagged pre event as a baseline to estimate numbers entrained against numbers stocked.  Gave up and went fishing instead.

Sorry, misunderstanding, what I was asking was who would be the recipient of all the data collected by INFOfish/Suntag.  I thought Andrew could tell me.  If it's all we've got, shouldn't the info be easy to access?

The recipient now is Infofish/Suntag. If you wish to obtain the data for any purpose a fee is charged.
This fee applies to everyone in my recent experience. Bill may be able to clarify or confirm this, best to contact him.
