focus on our waterways

FISHING World has featured an eclectic mix of covers over the past 50 years. These days we’re more conservative. We’ve worked out a winning formula and the “grip ’n’ grin” hero shot features more often than not. This month however - you may have noticed - is very different. No, the out-of-focus angler and fish wasn’t a mistake… Rather, the intention was to take “focus” away from the end result - the fish - and instead focus on the all-important habitat. After all, without a healthy waterway, there won’t be fish! The idea belongs to OzFish, a growing not-for-profit group making a big difference to the future of healthy waterways, fish stocks, and therefore fishing opportunities across Australia. OzFish and the great work it produces wouldn’t be possible without the help of…

it’s time to focus on our waterways

In the face of recent challenges for fish and before COVID-19 arrived, Australia has been battling droughts, fires and floods and there is no doubt it has impacted water quality, fish habitat and our fish. Not to mention this follows over a century of destruction through “progress”. To overcome these challenges there is now a group of recreational fishers who, like you, love fishing but have been quietly going about fixing our waterways to create better fishing opportunities for the future. The nation’s only recreational fish conservation movement and the outcomes it is achieving is a remarkable story. Established in 2014, OzFish Unlimited and its members are kicking some serious goals. The idea behind OzFish was if they looked after the fish and their habitat, the fishing would look after itself. OzFish…

wa rec survey results

SINCE 2011, WA has carried out a recreational boat fishing survey every two years to compare catches over time. The next survey commences this year but some of the results of the 2017/18 survey are particularly interesting. While rock lobsters, blue swimmer crabs, squid and other crustaceans and molluscs made up 53% of the reported recreational catch, the other 47% was finfish (1.3 million) from 186 scalefish species and 18 shark and ray species. The top two most commonly caught pelagic finfish were Spanish mackerel (10,000 caught, 45% released) and samson fish (8,000 caught, 79% released). For inshore and offshore demersal finfish, pink snapper (116,000 caught, 73% released) and West Australian dhufish (68,000 caught, 59% released). For nearshore and estuarine finfish, school whiting (259,000 caught, 24% released) and Australian herring…

HOW TO TAG GAME FISH Last issue we covered off on the history of the DPI Game Fish Tagging Program, what it does and how it works. This time we’ll go into detail on the process of tagging fish and why it’s so important to do it correctly. For tagging to be effective, the fish must be tagged in the correct location and with the correct tag. There are three main tag types - a billfish tag, a shark tag and a general pelagic species tag. The use of the wrong tag and incorrect tagging techniques can lead to tag loss (“shedding” - a similar process to human tissue rejecting a splinter) and can potentially harm the fish. The following info will maximise the success and effectiveness of your fish tagging! HOW TO TAG MOST SMALL TO…
