time to learn

IT’S hard to believe we’re half way through 2021 already! This time last year, the world was in the midst of uncertainty as the Covid pandemic took hold and changed the way we lived our lives. Thankfully, for now at least, locally things are looking more promising and most of us are getting back to “normal”. A positive that came from the pandemic and ensuing lockdowns was the boom in fishing popularity. During 2020 the appeal of leaving enclosed spaces and enjoying the great outdoors was more popular than ever. Some people took up bushwalking, others bought a caravan, but so many others recognised the simple pleasures of spending time outside fishing with their friends and family. I’ve mentioned this before and with the surge in fishing participation still climbing, it’s…

anatomy of an estuary

An estuary is defined as “the tidal mouth of a large river, where the tide meets the stream”. Expanded to include smaller rivers and creeks, this includes many waterways along Australia’s coastline. Estuaries are often fish-rich areas with relatively good access, and a significant number of Aussie anglers fish them. Estuaries offer a variety of fishing environments ranging from deep water to the flats. There is also an assortment of angling targets including large predators, schooling species and bait fish. Some are permanent residents while others come and go with the seasons. Estuaries appeal to both the angler fishing for a feed and the sportsman looking for a trophy. They can challenge the hard-core specialist and satisfy the “fish for what’s on” generalist. It can be difficult for inexperienced anglers to determine…

freshwater fish worldwide decline

A report prepared by 16 conservation groups including the WWF, The Nature Conservancy and Global Wildlife Conservation has suggested that the world’s freshwater fish population numbers have plummeted due to pressures including pollution, unsustainable fishing and the damming and draining of rivers and wetlands. It claims that populations of migratory fish have dropped by three-quarters in the last 50 years, with the larger species such as salmon and sturgeon faring even worse. Their numbers are reported to be down 94% overall. The WWF describes the decline as “catastrophic”. The report is titled “The World’s Forgotten Fishes” and its authors are calling for restoration of freshwater habitats both large and small through enforcement of existing environmental protection laws and the setting of new global recovery targets for ecosystems and species at…

a new everyday supermarket fish?

THE CSIRO has launched its “White flesh fish project”, which aims to identify more farmed fish species that can produce sustainable, affordable white fleshed fish for Australian consumers. Most current farmed white fleshed fish is either barramundi or yellowtail kingfish. Over the years, cobia, mahi mahi, mangrove jacks, snapper and mulloway have all been trialled by aquaculture researchers and producers, but the CSIRO’s current favoured candidate might raise a few eyebrows with the fly fishers as it’s the pompano, which they describe as “a hardy, beautiful fish with high quality white meat that is firm but finely flaked” with “a sweet mild taste and large bones which makes it very easy to eat”. They note that 110,000 tonnes of pompano are already produced in aquaculture facilities in the Asia /…
