Here's an idea for the government as the population of victoria is forever growing.
Build a snapper,whiting,flathead,squid and etc farm soley for the sale of fish and have the pro's run it,well maybe not run it but work on it .
I know the cost of setting something like this up would be high but an increase cost of fishing licences might be a good start.i know i would be more than happy to pay up to $100 per year for a fishing licence if i knew we were trying to cater for everyone. _________________ http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/823/20121223060422.jpg/
While the idea of fish farms seems to have merit, it has been said a thousand times (well almost) that farms are not the total answer, simply because all these farmed fish need to eat, so we catch tonnes of bait fish to feed them, from research it seems that to raise a fish to market size, requires more than its weight in food to keep it to that size, farming is a great idea, don't get me wrong here, but there is a lot more to it than just breeding fish to feed people who don't fish.
With the ever increasing population, mostly from immigration, why cant we train these immigrants to follow their cultural history and eat bloody carp?
I know a lot of different nationalities would happily eat carp in their homeland. Is carp even available in your fish markets at a cheap price?
Hey wrxtc4 if you wan't to sell your fish then go out and buy a commercial licence, it will only set you back about 320,000 grand or you could just do it illegaly and join all the other poachers out there.
the funnynthing is everyone knows who the poachers are
and it starts with charter boats catching bait on one charter and clients on the next charter
you may remember me as codman or codmansback we had an interesting 5o pages over that one
theres more poaching done by amatuers than there is done by pros sad fact
if anyone has ever been to vietnam or japan and seen their aqua culture youd be impressd labour cost make it viable
seen how the barra farms up nt work also very impressed
although more barra are farmed in saudi arabia than in aus
back to whiting i know a whiting fisherman that can take his bag every day of the year sometimes moving up to ten times on a handline
any day of the year on a handline no gps marks no sounder
i dont get my bag every day but i dont blame pros when i dont
my local pro is a shit he hits ground i fish and watches anglers then pounces some of the clowns talk to him like they are mates i dont because of his form some times
weve discussed it
im sure all pros arnt the same
im half a goose myself id hate to run into me
moral of the story times are changing fish hard fish different areas be happy that you can get a feed when youve got that go home or chase another quarry catch and release is all shit with whiting
