#61 :   Fishing Marketing
Author  Bruce Alvey

I think you will all be aware that the term "Recreational Fisherman" has been used by Fisheries Queensland in describing the participants in black marketing operations of fish for too many years. After writing to the Minister again, Sunfish has been contacted by the Minister of Fisheries Hon. Mark Furner who has assured us this will be changed in future. People carrying out these illegal activities will be referred to as just "Fishers"

We thank the Minister for supporting this change.

However, while we are talking about this subject, I would like to ask all fishing groups in Queensland to remind their members and friends that breaking the fishing regulations can carry heavy penalties. So always measure your fish and observe possession limits which do change occasionally - so be aware. (Eat your fish in the freezer regularly, do not let it build up.) . The law also states “possession of fish” so you can be prosecuted for excess fish or illegal fish regardless of the circumstances.

In Queensland it is illegal for recreational fishers to use your catch for any type of financial gain. You can give your fish away but remember you are responsible for the quality of this fish and any repercussions this act may cause. Giving away fish with any expectation of “reward” is also illegal as is “bartering” fish for services. You cannot raffle recreationally caught fish to raise funds for any reason. (This is legal in NSW for “Charities” but not in Qld.)

Thank you for your support and for participating in a wonderful healthy activity which can be fun for the whole family and provide one of the best meals you can eat.

Good Fishing.

Kind Regards
Bruce Alvey
Chair Sunfish Queensland Inc.

#48 :   Sunfish reply to the Greenpaper
Author  Sunfish

Sunfish Queensland supports the review into the management protocols of Fisheries Queensland. We do however believe that our fisheries stocks are generally in good health when compared in an international context. To maintain the healthy stocks and improve those in lesser abundance management of our fisheries needs to move forward and not cling to processes of the past.

We support the vision, goals and areas of reform proposed but the greatest challenges will be resourcing, data, community acceptance and keeping the reform external to the election process.

Our commercial fisheries need to be overhauled so that they have less operators and they are redesigned to better operate in a consumer environment that has a strong focus on socially and environmentally sustainably caught seafood. This will help to ensure greater profitability within commercial fisheries for the operators and make the career of “commercial fisherman” a viable career choice.

#1 :   Welcome to our Website

Welcome To Our Website 

 

From here you will be able to display a list of all SQAFCA affiliated clubs, plus perform searches to help you identify any clubs which visit any locations you are interested in, or the type of equipment that you wish to use.  This will help you locate clubs that could be of particular interest to you.

 

You can also view all the competition results for the current year from the Results Menu, and from any results page you can select to view any results for previous years that are available.

 

We also have an information section, where you can read articles of interest, see the Fish Length and Bag Limits that SQAFCA enforce at every competition and read the latest news (like this article now), so you'll always be up to date with everything that is happening.

 

Don't forget to check the Calendar to ensure important dates are not missed or forgotten.

 

To see what some of our outings and competition events look like why not browse through our gallery.  We will endeavour to include descriptions for each picture so you'll know where it was taken and during which competition / event.

 

If there is any information that you would like to see on our website, or you would like to contribute articles or photos, please contact The Publicity Officer. You can view all committee and board members from THIS PAGE
