Barramundi season is now CLOSED

Just a friendly reminder to everyone that as of midday today Barramundi are off limits. The closure remains in place until midday February 1st 2014. Not only is it illegal to keep a Barramundi during this time, it is also prohibited to deliberately target fish for catch and release purposes. This is due to the stress of capture may prevent a fish from spawning.

"It’s important that barramundi are not targeted for catch and release during a closed season as the stress of capture may prevent the fish from spawning.

If a fish is accidentally caught it should be handled carefully and release as soon as possible, preferably without even removing the fish from the water.

“If accidentally caught, the fish must be released into the water immediately. It is not to be removed from the water for a photo or tagging.

Different regulations apply throughout the Gulf of Carpentaria, check out the DPI&F website for specific details.

“Officers conduct regular patrols during closed seasons and those found doing the wrong thing are risking an on-the-spot fine of $440 and a maximum penalty of $110,000,” he said.
