Australian bass is back

The annual closed season for Australian bass in Queensland tidal waters ends this week.

Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol manager Ian Fricke said Australian bass had been off limits in tidal waterways from 1 June to 31 August to protect the species during its breeding
cycle.

“Fishers can return to their favourite tidal waterways to catch Australian bass from Thursday, 1 September,” he said.

“It’s important to remember that size and possession limits apply. The minimum size for Australian bass is 30 centimetres and the possession limit is two.

“The annual closed season is vital to protecting this migratory species of fish during a vulnerable time when they head downstream to spawn in brackish waters each year.

“The closure is an important measure that allows stocks to replenish to ensure there are sustainable fisheries for current and future generations of Queensland anglers.”
