Fisher flogging flathead fillets faces fine

The owner of this sign isn’t so smiley now.

AN on-line report from a member of the public provided excellent information that enabled NSW DPI Fisheries Officers on the south coast to apprehend a recreational fisher selling his catch from his caravan in Moruya.

Fisheries Officers from Batemans Bay and Montague districts were assisted by local Police. The fisher is now facing charges including taking fish for sale when not licensed, exceeding the possession limit and several other offences.

Fisheries Officers seized 62 flathead fillets and a chest freezer. Fishers are reminded that the sale of recreationally caught seafood carries severe penalties.
