Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
