Dont sell your catch

2 posts in this topic

 
 

Did you know it’s illegal to advertise fish for sale if you’re not a licensed commercial fisher in Queensland?

A fisher who tried to sell blueclaw yabbies via Facebook was investigated by Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol who issued a Fisheries Infringement Notice.

Under the Fisheries Act, you must have a licence to sell fish and the taking of fish for sale without a licence is prohibited. Offering to sell, or offering to sell for someone else, also constitutes selling fisheries resources.

To report suspected illegal fishing activity including the unlawful sale of fish, report it to Fishwatch by calling 1800 017 116 or fill out the online form at https://goo.gl/oWR5cG

I think that applies for every state too,unless you're licensed to catch and sell fish it's illegal.. It still goes on pretty frequently though..

He was a bit dumb putting that on face book too.. paid the penalty as he should.
