West coAst ban update

West coAst ban update

From what I am hearing in the industry it will be a 6 month ban. The fishing charters will have tag System like they did in shark bay for the pink snapper. My license which allows me to operate from Onslow to NT border will be getting reduced from 5 fish to 3 fish but you will be able to keep 3 trout or Bluebone.

 

Anyone else know anything?

 No point in speculating until its announced, as painful as Punch is being as well as Fisheries

 Some of what Meeu put above is already in the public domain, the rest is close to what will likely be the outcome but I wouldnt bet a penny on it.

The Minister and DOF speak with forked tongue, just been involved in it too long to not be jaded by their tactics which work beautifully for them.

The general process is to engage with the peak bodies (RecfisWest, SSAA etc) to keep them from going rogue.

Then drop the bomb

 All the messages say they won't do that, including from behind the scenes.

But I'm a cynic, which is all the more reason for me to get involved, so they CAN'T say there was no opposition to it.
