Take part in fishery groups
NORTHSIDE residents with an interest in fishing are encouraged to register their interest in becoming part of the biggest reform in Queensland’s fisheries management for a generation.
Expressions of interest are being sought from experienced individuals to join one of three new fishery working groups.
Member for Sandgate Stirling Hinchliffe said people were needed to be part of the east coast trawl, crab, and east coast inshore working groups.
He said the groups would provide advice on management options and developing a harvest strategy.
Fisheries Queensland is seeking people with knowledge from a range of sectors including recreational, commercial or indigenous fishers, charter fishing licence holders, fishing tackle retailers, research or scientific advisors, seafood marketers and processors, or people with conservation experience
