FRDC Meeting Fails to Support Super Trawler

25 July 2014
Claims by the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC) that researchers at a FRDC funded workshop in South Australia “concluded that Australian fisheries science and management were on par with the rest of the world” are unfounded.
 
Alistair Graham, who attended and presented at the conference, has a very different view. “The workshop did not arrive at this conclusion at all. International researchers were in no position to agree with the proposition put by local organisers that Australian fisheries management was on par with the rest of the world because the workshop made no formal resolutions at all. The workshop seemed to be set up by FRDC with the deliberate aim of engineering a veneer of international credibility for the small pelagic fishery as part of efforts to smooth the way for another attempt to introduce a super trawler like the Margiris”.

Rock Lobster Fishery Re-opening

The recreational and commercial rock lobster fisheries in the Maria Island Biotoxin Zone re-opened from 00:01 on Saturday, 19 July 2014.

The results of rock lobster sampled from the Maria Island Biotoxin zone have shown PST levels below the regulatory limit. The standing Public Health Alert from the Department of Health and Human Services recommending that people discard rock lobster gut remains in place.

Barnacle encrusted Mercury Outboard starts

A barnacle encrusted Mercury outboard recovered some 200 nautical miles off Dampier in Western Australia, started after spending months underwater. Marine Engineer Matt Giles was working on the Offshore Support Vessel “Far Shogun” when an upturned tinnie was spotted in the water. “It was a 3.2m Stacer and going by the barnacles and other marine growth on the hull it looked as if it (and the engine) had been underwater for a few months at least,” he said.

Broadbill Swordfish

Tasmania has taken centre stage this month within game fishing circles nationally. You won’t see that often in a lifetime of fishing. Sure we are world renowned for our bluefin fishery and close proximity to the grounds, but what has excited the nation’s anglers is Tasmania’s recent broadbill swordfish action.

Overnight my aunt Fanny......
Leo Millar and his devoted crew have been putting considerable man hours both on and off the water in working out this species in Tasmania. It has long been the feeling of a number of Tasmania’s top anglers that good numbers of broadbill swordfish (xiphias gladius) are off our magical shores. The incidental by-catch from recreational long liners and a few captures on electric reels has suggested as such.
