Aussie bass reminder: closed season starts 1 June

Aussie bass reminder: closed season starts 1 June
News release | 30 May, 2013 - QLD DAFF

Fishers are being reminded that Australian bass is off limits throughout Queensland from 1 June until 31 August 2013.

Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol District Manager Rob McDonald 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 fish stores for current and future generations of Queensland anglers."

Mr McDonald said an exception to the closed season applied in and from waterways upstream of:

Baroon Pocket, Bjelke-Peterson, Boondooma, Borumba, Cania, Cressbrook, Fred Haigh (Lake Monduran), Gordonbrook, Hinze, Lenthalls, Maroon, Moogerah, North Pine, Somerset, Waruma and Wivenhoe Dams
Claude Wharton and Jones Weirs
Isis Balancing Storage (Lake Gregory), Lake Dyer (Bill Gunn Dam) and Lake MacDonald.
"Anglers are reminded that size and possession limits still apply to Aussie bass taken from these waterways. The minimum size is 30cm and the possession limit is two," Mr McDonald said.

"QBFP officers conduct regular patrols during closed seasons and those found doing the wrong thing are risking an on-the-spot fine of $440 and a maximum penalty of $110 000."

Anyone who suspects or witnesses illegal fishing activity is encouraged to call the Fishwatch hotline on 1800 017 116.
