Man fined $10,000 for crab pot interference

THINK twice next time you consider interfering with someone else’s crab pot. A man was prosecuted in Mackay recently and fined $10,000 for interfering with fishing apparatus.

There are multiple operations and investigations into illegal crabbing activity across Queensland, with day and night patrols on waterways and at boat ramps including the use of specialised surveillance equipment like hidden cameras which have resulted in numerous successful prosecutions.

Don’t take the chance! If you suspect illegal crabbing, report it to the Fishwatch hotline on 1800 017 116. l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l
