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

Any luck on the Stokes Hill fishing platform?

Post by Matt Flynn » Fri Jul 24, 2020 2:25 pm

Anyone fished the Darwin Stokes Hill wharf fishing platform since the new reef components went in?

Or anyone ever catch fish off the previously installed reefs over the years?

The original reef components were timber boat hulls.

The new ones, installed this month, are small concrete units not unlike the ones used down south, called reef balls.

Fifteen of the concrete units have been located off the Stokes Hill platform ... https://dpir.nt.gov.au/news/2020/july/n ... hill-wharf
