Global warming and overfishing. And any good news we can dig up.

It's interesting.

If they allowed recreational fishos to sell X amount of fish annually per rec licence they might have a new way to provide fish for commercial sale, and with a managed total take.

A commercial boat crew flicking lures is going to cut it ... what other options do they have to harvest estuary fish?

Apparently it's just around the barrier reef

I reckon it's a shared asset only in as much as everyone has a right to go out and catch a couple

Article says farmed fish is the answer. Dunno about that, I'd say only part of the answer ... should be some wild fish on the shelves for landlubbers.

Good to see more gill nets go though, if they follow through with their plan.
