Health Issues

Each summer, we assess the health of reefs, as this time of the year poses a greater risk of coral bleaching, extreme weather and flooding. Stressful conditions can lead to coral disease outbreaks, while poor water quality can also lead to greater numbers of coral eating crown-thorn-starfish.

Restrictions

There are fishing restrictions.

  • -Take only what you need
  • -Do not use pest or non-native fish for bait. Never release introduced species into the water

  • -Do not fish where fish feeding takes place, for example as part of a tourist program
  • -If you're unsure of the fish identity or size, release the fish immediately
  • -Return all undersized and unwanted fish quickly to minimise injury
  • -If you're keeping the fish, remove it from the hook or net immediately and kill it humanely
  • -Do not litter - clean up all fishing gear (such as discarded tackle and line, and bait bags) and take it back to shore to dispose of it properly.
