Atlantic Salmon At Large

Recently Atlantic salmon seems to be a very hot topic amongst local anglers, especially those in the south of the state in the D'Entrecasteaux area. Northern anglers should take a close look at the Tamar as there are opportunities here as well.

 Researchers at the AMC are investigating the influence of environmental later conditions on bream growth and survival. As a recreational fisher we would like you to participate as a recreational research angler.  Next time you go fishing for bream and keep a few, place your frames in a plastic bag with a label stating the date, capture estuary, your name and contact details. 

You can freeze these frames and drop them off at participating tackle shops. We will use these frames to determine the age of the fish and determine its annual growth rates. Prizes will be awarded for the donation of bream frames. Prizes will be awarded based on the oldest fish donated, the total accumulated age of fish donated and a random raffle of all participating fishers.  Participating fishers will also be eligible to receive an annual subscription to Tasmanian Fishing and Boating News
If your interested in participating and want more information talk to the staff in this tackle shop or
Call Dr James Haddy on 0439 032 935 or 6324 3828.
