Crab pot clean-up in Maroochy River

MOOLOOLABA Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol officers have begun a crab pot clean-up in the Maroochy River as part of Fisheries Queensland’s #WarOnWasteAU.

After covering only a quarter of the river system, officers seized 64 non-compliant or abandoned crab apparatus and will be completing a clean-up of the river and other two major systems on the Sunshine Coast over the coming month.

You can report derelict crab pots or illegal activity by calling the 24-hour Fishwatch hotline on 1800 017 116 (toll free within Queensland).

  1. If you want another place to clean up can I suggest Tingalpa Cr? It is full of pots either not used anymore or not legal.
