Maria Island Zone (Wineglass Bay to Marion Bay)
Monitoring of PST levels in rock lobster samples taken from the Maria Island Zone have returned results that will enable the rock lobster fishery in this zone to open on Sunday, 11 December 2016.
Pots may be set in the Maria Island Zone area from 13:00 hours (i.e. 1pm) on Saturday 10 December 2016, however pots cannot be hauled or lobster taken until Sunday 00:01 hours (i.e. Sunday morning).
All the biotoxin zone PST closures have now been lifted and the 'normal' rock lobster fishery rules apply from that date.
