Nsw jewfish bag limit change
« on: Wed 8 Aug 19:32 2018 »
Just a heads up for those that venture over the border.
NSW are leading the way in acting to maintain a sustainable fishery.
Hope QLD fisheries get their act together and bring the tailor bag limit in line with NSW soon.

    Good to see.
    After 5 years of that size they should increase it to 75cm, then 80cm 5 years further down the track to 85cm.
    Qld should do the same.

    Rules on work on those that abide by them

    FB is covered in photos of guys taking their catch of 4 snapper each, but at 80cm per fish when only 1 permitted per person at this size
    They know when they post and do it for a laugh

    Ive been fishing for 30+ years and never seen a fisheries officer

    Most mulloway fishing is done at night, outside the fisheries 9-5 working hours

    Like firearms, will only apply to the honest

    Whats the thought process, logic, science behind the 5 cm increases every 5 years ?

    Apparently according the the latest data jew start spawning at about 70cm, the new legal minimum. Why harvest the fish at their first spawn?
    Increase the size to get multiple spawns from protected fish.
    The more spawns the bigger the populations......over ten years with two size increases the numbers will be up at the 85cm enough for people who are either dedicated or lucky enough to get a good size fish for the table.

    You are mistaken if you think fisheries only work 9-5.
    I have been checked land based late at night and i have been checked early hours of the morning on the 50s (they went all the way out in an inflatable)
    Also been checked out at swains reef whilst on a charter.

    i have lost count of the amount of times i have been checked, inshore/offshore and even lakes.

    Ive been checked by fisheries 3 times in the past decade, once near scarby reef.
    Twice in the same location in the Pine River on the same date and time 2 years apart.

    We need more officers checking people though.
    I would not complain being checked once a week.

    I am 58 and have never been checked at " in boat" in Qld despite fishing most weekends
    I have been checked at the ramp

    I often fish Ballina and Iluka and expect to be checked on water

    Qld resourcing is poor compared to NSW

    I can tell you all, fisheries officers are around and do conduct checks and surveillance at anytime , just like RBT, anywhere , anytime. NSW is a smaller state compared to Qld. Fisheries are mostly more visible during prawning season and tailor season, along with their counterparts i.e. Water Police.

    These days more emphasis is being placed on the use of drones.

    22 additional Officers were employed this year and deployed throughout the state.
