fishing’s true value

FISHING has many obvious economic and health benefits. We often hear them rolled out, usually during the process of defending rec fishing rights. Mostly we hear about the positive benefits to the economy, or the physical benefits that come with getting outside, and even eating seafood. However, one aspect which is harder to quantify, but no less important, is the massive positive impact fishing has on our mental well being. Fishing has always been a way to escape the daily grind and relax. Escaping the realities of the "real world" and spending time on the water has incredible mental health benefits. Being so highly engaged with the process of fishing does an amazing job of blocking out the problems of the outside world. Then there are the social aspects and related…

jewel of the river

For as long as I can remember, one species of fish has dominated my mind, captivating my imagination and leaving me utterly confused more times than I can count. This fish is none other than the mighty mulloway. The mulloway, aka jewfish, is the undisputed "King of the river" throughout the southern half of Australia, and rightly so I say! They grow to impressive sizes, they look great, they eat a variety of baits and lures, and they can be found just about anywhere from the brackish reaches of estuaries all the way through to inshore reefs and headlands, and just about everywhere in between! All in all, they’ve got a lot going for them! For me though, I think it’s ultimately a combination of these factors as well as…

ENVIRONMENT: AN OPEN LETTER TO NSW’S NEW FISHERIES MINISTER DEAR Minister Marshall First, congratulations on your re-election and appointment as Minister. You’ve some significant challenges ahead, particularly in the country regions.

I certainly have, and this month I’ll explore some recently published research where scientists determined just that. ● By Dr Ben Diggles…

upsizing risks

TIGHT bag limits on sought after species has led some fishers to engage in upsizing, where smaller but legal length fish are retained alive but released if larger specimens are caught later in the fishing session. Be warned…if you’re caught with more than your bag limit even if you’re about to release some of your catch alive and healthy, you can still be fined, as a recent WA case shows. A recreational crayfish diver brought a bag of crays to his boat with the intention of releasing any that were undersized or exceeded his permitted bag limit of eight, after sorting and measuring, as his two mates had just done. Unluckily for him Fisheries officers turned up as he boarded his boat and charged him with having 25 crays in…

class "wharfare" at walsh bay

SYDNEY anglers are accusing wealthy waterfront apartment owners of waging a “class war” on people who just want to throw a line into Sydney Harbour. According to an article in the Daily Telegraph and as reported on Channel 9, the Walsh Bay Precinct Association is urging the NSW Government to ban all fishing off the wharves at Walsh Bay near Barangaroo. They have accused fishers of using the wharves as a toilet, leaving rubbish everywhere, talking too loudly, hurling abuse and shining lights into their multimillion-dollar apartments at 3am. The Association also claims people sitting at nearby cafes are scared they will be caught by a hook as anglers cast their lines. But Recreational Fishing Alliance of NSW president Stan Konstantaras said rich property owners are simply trying to kill a 150-year-old Sydney Harbour…
