A quick note to mention a milestone - this article below (Biotoxin PST sampling update) is article number 2000 for Tasfish.com
The entire Eastern Region (east of Point Sorell around to Whale Head) remains closed to rock lobster fishing due to elevated levels of biotoxins.

Tonic Polarised Eyewear, the new leader in high quality fishing sunglasses, has released two new frames the Mo and Jo in time for summer. Mo and Jo feature the new SLICE lens, the thinnest and lightest polarised glass lens in the world.
Doug Phillips, maker of high quality polarised eyewear in Australia since 1992 and founder of Tonic Eyewear says: “the Mo & Jo are a new direction for Tonic, they are big styles and bolder than anything we have ever done before. They are great for fishing and everyday use too. Everyone is going to want a pair of Mo or Jo this summer”. See the PDF of the press release here

A delegation of recreational fishers and conservationists from the Stop the Trawler Alliance today delivered over 14,000 new petitioners’ names to Government MP Sarah Henderson, calling for a permanent ban on super trawlers in Australia’s Small Pelagic Fishery, bringing the total petition to 230,000 concerned citizens.
“The Geelong Star has demonstrated that factory freezer trawlers cannot economically fish under management conditions that reduce impacts and community concerns to anywhere near acceptable levels. The Turnbull Government has inherited a lemon with super trawlers, but there is now an opportunity to respond to the overwhelming public call for a ban on factory trawlers in the Small Pelagic Fishery,” said Rebecca Hubbard of Environment Tasmania.
The opening of the recreational rock lobster season in the Eastern Region (waters eastward of Point Sorell and Whale Head) scheduled for 21 November 2015 has been postponed due to elevated levels of paralytic shellfish toxins (PST) measured in rock lobster and bivalve indicator species.
Results obtained as of Monday 9 November indicate elevated PST levels in rock lobster and bivalve shellfish across a wider area of the East Coast and particularly high levels in areas in the north east. These results mean that the sampling area must now be expanded further to determine the extent of the harmful algal bloom and biotoxin levels in lobsters.
