Netting bans create fish black market

netting bans on fishingRecreational fishers and local fish shops are being put on notice amid claims recreational fisherman have been illegally selling their catch. A market has reportedly opened up after the state government announced restrictions on commercial fishing in Port Phillip Bay. Netting bans will come into effect in Corio Bay April 2018, and 2022 in the rest of Port Phillip Bay. The commerical licence buy-back scheme has allegedly already led to shortages, sparking fears recreational anglers are hawking their catches directly to fish shops. Fisheries officer Mark Gibson says it’s not just recreational fishers who are in their sites.
