Illegal fishing equipment removed from Ingham estuary

Fisheries Queensland recently received information from the public reporting illegal fishing equipment adrift in an estuarine system south of Ingham.

Apart from its risk to maritime safety, illegal fishing equipment can ‘ghost fish’ whilst it remains within the marine environment. As a result, the equipment can continue to trap and potentially kill marine life.

QBFP field officers successfully located the equipment and removed it from the marine environment.

If you spot any illegal fishing equipment, you can report it via the 24-hour toll-free Fishwatch Hotline 📞 1800 017 116.
