Don't sell your catch

  Published December 3rd, 2016

If you fish recreationally, don’t sell your catch

Two fishers from Burnside (Vic) have been arrested for selling fish they caught using a recreational licence.

Fisheries officers believe the Golden Perch were caught at Lake Eildon.

On Wednesday 15 November the fishers, a man and a woman aged 66 and 64, allegedly sold their perch for cash at a residential address.

On Thursday, it is alleged they sold another ten Golden Perch at a bakery in Richmond.

They were arrested shortly afterwards and taken to Richmond Police Station.

A warrant was issued to seize their car, boat, fishing equipment and any proceeds of crime.

Fisheries Victoria Director of Education and Enforcement, Ian Parks, said the arrest should act as a reminder and a warning to other fishers that fish caught recreationally cannot be sold.

“Inland rivers and lakes are being fished very heavily at the moment for Golden Perch,” Mr Parks said.

“While we love seeing Victorians out on the water taking advantage of our superb fishing, we want to remind everyone that selling recreational fish is a serious matter that threatens the sustainability of Victoria's precious fish stocks.”

“If you are caught selling recreational fish you stand to lose your fishing equipment, your car, your boat and all the money you’ve earned: it’s just not worth it.”

“If you have any information in relation to persons selling recreationally caught fish, I encourage you to contact fisheries on our offence reporting hotline, 13 FISH (13 3474)."
