Fishing the Fitzroy Net Free Video
Check out our latest video: Fishing the Fitzroy Net Free celebrates the success of a campaign by anglers and conservationists in the Rockhampton area of Queensland, Australia that has turned the Fitzroy River system into a net free zone. The commercial netting of fish, that over the past 20 years has decimated fish numbers in the system, has now been banned and indigenous species such as Barramundi, King Threadfin and Saratoga are thriving once more. Anglers are requested to adhere to a daily limit, but seem quite happy to do so, as the size of fish they are catching is steadily increasing, as is the new business generated by fishing tourists, attracted to the area.
