Win a prize for prawn netting tips!
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.
