Beats me why there is a regulation to control the use of aparatus used to capture a feral species that should not be returned to the water.
 Cheers
Ray


....because the exact same apparatus also catches endemic species, not just redclaw.

If you can come up with a trap that only catches redclaw and absolutely nothing else, then let me know I'll lobby long and hard for you to be allowed 50 of 'em Ray.  :thumbsup

Yep I broke the law again on the weekend

Found this ghost pot at Wivenhoe. No names, no tags and thankfully no dead wildlife.

If it's yours I relocated it from the bouy line back to the bin at Logan's ramp

Picture now added.
