Open season on rock lobster for 50,000 fishermen
FISHERMEN will be able to fill their pots in time for Christmas with the WA rock lobster season now open.
A number of rock lobster species call the WA coastline home and Recfishwest chief executive Andrew Rowland said there would be an abundance of the sea dwellers for close to 50,000 licensed fishermen.
“The last few lobster seasons have been fantastic and with the science pointing towards another bumper sea- son and the new rules allowing more people to have a go, this year’s season is all about improving recreational fishing experiences” he said.
