GILLNET

WINNER, OUR IMPACT

MARBLEFISH

BOVICHTUS ANGUSTIFRONS; HERRING CALE, ODAX CYANOMELAS

In most Australian states recreational gillnets are now illegal. However, in Tasmania gillnets or graball nets – due to their non-selective nature – can still be set for six hours at a time. This marblefish and herring cale are likely to be released from this net as dead by catch.
