Fisheries seize 18kg of lobster

FISHERIES officers have seized 18kg of Rock Lobster and 13 pots from recreational fishers during a recent two-day operation at Southend.

Recreational fishers were caught committing offences that included operating pots not registered in their own name, taking more than the rock lobster boat limit and returning a pot into the water that contained rock lobster.

Fines were issued to three fishers, while investigations are still ongoing in relation to other fishers.

The offending comes off the back of a busy summer holiday
