Bass Closed Season Reminder

Bass Closed Season Reminder - Qld Fisheries

Qld fishers are being reminded that Australian bass is off limits throughout Queensland tidal waters from 1 June until 31 August 2016. 
Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol manager Ian Fricke said the closure was in place to protect Australian bass during their breeding cycle. 
“The annual closure period is vital to protecting Australian bass during vulnerable times,” he said.
“The closed season allows stocks to replenish to ensure there are healthy and sustainable fish stocks for current and future generations of Queensland anglers.”
Mr Fricke said fishers can continue to target and keep Australian bass caught in non-tidal waters.
“Anglers are reminded that size and possession limits still apply to Australian bass taken from these waterways. The minimum size is 30 centimetres and the possession limit is two,” Mr Fricke said.
“QBFP 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 $117,800.”   
The closed season for Australian bass in Queensland tidal waters ends on 1 September 2016.   
If you suspect illegal fishing activity report it to the Fishwatch hotline on 1800 017 116.
