Casual Work available dive collecting

Rumour has it that some FFF members are spearos. It's time to come out of the closet.

Casual Work available dive collecting

Post by starvin » Tue Mar 08, 2011 4:29 pm

I am looking for a couple of divers to help collect aquarium fish and corals.
Work is carried out under NT licence and divers need to have an open water dive ticket or above
Day trips and extended trips out of Darwin
It would be a good way to scope out new spearing spots :D

I used to colect fish etc for my private aquarium under licence but I would have thought you need a professional diver’s ticket for that (paid work) and not just a weekend warrior card ?
A mate of mine in Sydney got nailed for cleaning a boat hull on a PADI O/W ticket

Wasn’t me who talked about abalone. I've caught them in Tassie and Jervis bay but only for personal use

You may have not talked about abalone but it is relivant to the comment above. Obviously it isnt only the Territorys law if the same law applys to abalone as they arent found here. :P :mrgreen:

If you want to pay me to dive for small fish on the weekend feel free. Where do I sign. Didn't want any abalone anyway.
