Joondalup Weekender - - News -

RECRE­ATIONAL fish­ers will have their first chance to catch abalone when the sea­son starts this Sun­day.

The open sea­son runs in the West Coast Zone from 7am to 8am on the first Sun­day of each month from Novem­ber to March.

Li­censed fish­ers are per­mit­ted to catch the mol­lusc along the coast from Moore River to Bus­sel­ton Jetty, with a daily bag limit of 15 Roe’s abalone.

The Depart­ment of Fish­eries rec­om­mends pro­tec­tive footwear and a wet­suit or light cloth­ing, loose-weave net bag for abalone, study­ing con­di­tions and keep­ing an eye on the swell.
