Kevin and Vicky Baker, owners and Directors of Queensland Fishing Brokerage Pty Ltd, wish to thank all of our friends and valued clients over the last few months for their concern, patience and understanding while Kevin has been through diagnosis and the successful surgery for bowel cancer.

Kev has been given clean bill of health with a blood test to come shortly and another scan in a few months time.

Please email us at [email protected]  if Kev is unavailable by phone and we will endeavour to reply asap.

We wish to thank Dr’s Braun, Meade and Grimes as well as the staff at the Northwest and Wesley hospitals, and the Icon Centre Chermside for their quality, kind and patient care and ongoing support.

Early detection has improved Kev’s outlook and we urge everyone not to ignore any symptoms, use testing kits or see your doctor and not wait until it is too late.

PROPOSED SCALLOP CLOSURES

https://www.daf.qld.gov.au/fisheries/consultations-and-legislation/reviews-surveys-and-consultations/intended-scallop-fishing-closures

Changes to the management of the scallop fishery have taken effect from 15 December 2016:

1.    The six Scallop Replenishment Areas are closed permanently. This closure will apply immediately to all SRA’s including those which are due to open on 3 January 2017.

2.    A winter spawning closure has been implemented for scallops from 1 May to 31 October each year. Fishers will not be able to take or possess scallops in East Coast Trawl Fishery waters during this period. Scallop nets will still be allowed during this period when fishing for other species.

These changes effectively limit scallop fishing to the period 1 November to 1 May each year and only in areas outside of the SRA’s. Scallop nets can continue to be used all year round if fishing for other species such as Moreton Bay Bugs.

If you require any further information, please contact Mr Darren Roy, Senior Policy Officer, Fisheries Queensland, on telephone 07 3087 8018 or email [email protected]
