Fishermen stung with undersized fish in 4-day crackdown

RECREATIONAL fishermen breaking the law were stung in a recent four-day infringement notice operation at Seventeen Seventy.

Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol officers spent four days at Seventeen Seventy during a recent compliance operation.

There were 23 infringement notices issued and ten marine infringement notices for boating safety breaches.

"A large number of recreational fishing vessels, many that had travelled from south east Queensland, were inspected at the boat ramp and in the Gladstone area," they wrote on their Facebook page.

"A high number of fisheries offences were detected during the four-day operation including possessing undersized fish, no-take fish species and excess numbers of fish."

"If we want future generations to enjoy fishing in this beautiful part of the world, we all need to follow the size, take and possession limits for fishing in Queensland tidal waters. Brush up on the rules and regulations before you launch in."
