Win a prize for prawn net­ting tips!

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - @SCHOOL -

CATCH­ING a feed of prawns off the beach is fun – but be care­ful what you catch.

Thou­sands of baby fish can get caught in the nets – es­pe­cially drag nets.

They in­clude the fish we love to catch and eat like queen­fish, mack­eral, salmon and jew­fish.

The Dou­glas Lo­cal Ma­rine Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee is ask­ing net­ters to be care­ful to make sure there are plenty of fish to catch in years to come.

Col­lect the com­mit­tee’s net­ting tips over the next five weeks and you could win a $50 voucher at Moss­man Bait and Tackle or Nau­ti­cal Ma­rine Sales.

Sim­ply write down your name, school, and list the five tips that will ap­pear over the next five weeks on the “Get Reel” fish­ing page (page 27 in this is­sue). Then lodge your en­try at Moss­man Bait and Tackle or Nau­ti­cal

Ma­rine Sales in Port Dou­glas. You can also mail your en­try to the Gazette: PO Box 512, Port Dou­glas 4877. En­tries close on April 3 and the lucky win­ners will be an­nounced in the Gazette on April 6.
