THE Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) is reminding anglers of the 2021 Queensland coral reef fin fish closures.

The closures start immediately after midnight on the day of the closure and end immediately before midnight at the end of the closure period. The 2021 closure dates are:

  • 3 October 2021 to 7 October 2021
  • 2 November 2021 to 6 November 2021

DAF says the coral reef fin fish closure dates are based on moon phases, when coral trout and many other reef species aggregate to spawn. This allows stocks to replenish to ensure healthy fish stocks for current and future generations of Queensland fishers.
