MARRON FISHERS CAUGHT
MARRON fishers were caught not following rules before the month-long 2015 season for the gourmet freshwater crustaceans, which ends on February 5. Fisheries compliance manager Brett Hopley said while most fishers followed rules, patrols found nets before the January 8 start of the month-long season. Anyone within 50m of marron waters should only have legal drop nets, snares and pole snares and not illegal traps sold at tackle shops.
