Fishers' guide to handling bycatch: Sea snakes
 
06:04
There are over 20 species of sea snakes that inhabit the coastal and offshore waters of Queensland; all are protected under state and federal legislation. Of the many different methods used to catch seafood in Queensland, trawling is the most likely to result in fishers having a need to interact with sea snakes, especially in warm tropical waters. In the event of sea snakes being captured during trawl operations, the use of correct handling methods, appropriate handling equipment and personal protective equipment can minimise the risk to humans, as well as maximise the chances of sea snake survival.

How to correctly measure a shark or ray caught in Queensland
 
01:52
Did you know that there is a take and possession (or "bag" limit) of one shark or ray per person in Queensland? And did you know that some sharks are totally protected? Learn how to correctly measure a shark or ray to ensure you only take a legal catch home. Remember, if it's over 1.5m in total length, it must be returned to the water. Check out more on shark and ray rules at www.fisheries.qld.gov.au

Fish for the future: responsible crabbing
 
03:03
There’s really no excuse for not knowing and following the rules and regulations for recreational crab fishing in Queensland. Check out our new video about responsible crabbing practices. If everyone does the right thing, we’ll have a sustainable crab fishery for future generations to enjoy. More information on crab rules and protected crab species can be found on the Fisheries Queensland website at www.fisheries.qld.gov.au Connect with us: https://www.facebook.com/FisheriesQueensland/ https://twitter.com/fisheriesQLD https://www.instagram.com/fisheriesqld/

How to measure a fish correctly
 
02:41
There is a correct way that Queensland recreational fishers should measure the fish they catch. A sturdy ruler or coil tape measure should be used rather than adhesive measuring devices. The measuring device should have an end stop on it so that the fish can be put against the edge for accuracy. Check out the video for more details on how to measure fish correctly.

Fishers' guide to handling bycatch: Rays
 
08:05
There are more than 120 different ray species in Australian waters and the majority of these species do not occur anywhere else in the world. While most of Australia's rays can usually be found at the bottom of the sea, there are a few species, such as manta rays, that inhabit the open ocean. Only a handful of Australia's ray species live in estuaries.

Jungle perch restocking project
 
01:43
Jungle perch is a popular angling species, but have become locally extinct in many rivers between Mackay and the Gold Coast. This project will focus on nutrition of adult fish to improve egg and larval quality, tank rearing conditions and appropriate larval feeds so we can re-introduce jungle perch through restocking. For more information on the project, visit http://www.daff.qld.gov.au/fisheries/research/research-projects/developing-jungle-perch-fingerling-production-to-improve-fishing-opportunities This is a Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry project supported by the Australian Government Fisheries Research and Development Corporation. Our project partners are James Cook University and the Freshwater Fishing and Stocking Association of Queensland.

TED measurement and inspection guide
 
09:49
Queensland is home to six of the world's seven species of marine turtles and supports some of the largest marine turtle nesting areas in the Indo-Pacific region. Because marine turtles are highly mobile, they can potentially interact with a variety of fishing apparatus used by Queensland's commercial fishers. Fortunately, the risk to turtles that was once posed by trawl fisheries has now largely been reduced by Turtle Excluder Devices, or TEDs, which allow these animals and other large species such as sharks and rays, to escape the net upon capture. TEDs and other recognised bycatch reduction devices are mandatory in all otter trawl nets of vessels fishing in the Queensland east coast trawl fishery. This measurement and inspection guide will help compliance officers, net manufacturers and fishers ensure the TEDs they see, make and use are compliant with the current regulations.

Fishers' guide to handling bycatch: Freshwater turtles
 
05:48
There are eleven native species of freshwater turtle that live in the waterways of Queensland; all are protected under state legislation. Eel fishers are the only commercial fishers that interact with these animals. Watch our video on how to safely handle a turtle.

Barotrauma: returning fish to deeper water
 
07:48
Barotrauma is a potentially fatal condition for fish, which mainly affects fish caught in water deeper than 20 metres. It occurs when a fish is hauled to the surface and the air within the fish's swim bladder expands as pressure decreases. Barotrauma causes internal damage and may prevent the fish from swimming down from the water surface, leaving it prone to sun damage and predators. For more info on barotrauma, visit www.fisheries.qld.gov.au or call 13 25 23. Connect with us: https://www.facebook.com/FisheriesQueensland http://twitter.com/fisheriesQLD

Fishers' guide to handling bycatch: Sharks
 
06:55
Queensland's waters are home to well over 100 species of shark. Sitting at the top of the food chain, these animals play an important role in our marine ecosystems. Although media attention is often directed towards the small percentage that potentially pose a danger to humans, the large majority of species actually represent no risk to swimmers or surfers. All sharks, however, can inflict nasty bites, or injuries from their strong tails, if mishandled.

How do we use harvest strategies to manage fisheries?
 
03:12
Good fisheries management provides the benefits of fishing, without compromising aquatic habitats and fish stocks. A Harvest Strategy is a framework that supports the fisheries management process. Fisheries Queensland is working with all stakeholders to develop harvest strategies for all fisheries by 2020.

Fish handling methods
 
02:37
The "catch and release" method is becoming an increasingly popular way of fishing recreationally in Queensland. Not only is it a responsible way of fishing for the future, but it also helps fishers consistently abide by size limits and possession limits, also know as bag limits. Using correct fish handling methods can help to maximise the survival of a fish caught for release. This Fisheries Queensland video shows some handling methods to reduce stress on fish that you are catching. Find out more about how to release fish for survival http://www.daff.qld.gov.au/fisheries/recreational/tips-responsibilities/how-to-release-fish-for-survival Connect with us: https://www.facebook.com/FisheriesQue... http://twitter.com/fisheriesQLD

Fishers' Guide to handling bycatch: Sea turtles
 
06:21
Queensland is home to six of the world's seven species of marine turtle, and supports some of the largest marine turtle nesting areas in the Indo--Pacific region. While many Queenslanders may consider the familiar green turtle to be a common inhabitant of our coastal waters, all species of marine turtle are actually endangered, and are protected under state and national legislation, as well as international conventions.

Stocking Queensland’s dams and weirs with native fish
 
01:49
More than 40 volunteer groups stock the dams and weirs on the Stocked Impoundment Permit Scheme with native fish. They source native fish fingerlings and release them into more than 60 dams and weirs to create some of the best freshwater fishing in Queensland.
Shark control program
 
07:02
In Queensland, we share our marine environment with a diverse number of fish species including large predators like sharks. Shark control equipment is in place to protect swimmers by catching large sharks and thereby reducing shark populations in a localised area. This helps to minimise the risk of shark attacks.

Boat destroyed: Crushing blow for illegal crabbers
 
00:55
The Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol today destroyed a modified fishing boat used by three recreational fishers who were found guilty of illegal crabbing earlier this year. The boat, worth around $6000, had a secret compartment with 69 live mud crabs hidden in it, was forfeited to the State along with its motor, trailer and crab pots.

For a decade, Fisheries Queensland has been collecting vital biological information for a range of species using a fishery-independent trawl survey. In November and December, our Fishery Monitoring team will be conducting surveys on juvenile eastern king prawns from Fraser Island to the Gold Coast including Moreton Bay. Prawn size and abundance information collected will contribute to assessing stock status for this species.
