Reopen – Pink Snapper Cockburn and Warnbro Sounds Closure 1 October – 31 January

31 January @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Pink snapper

Cockburn and Warnbro Sounds: Closed season 1 October – 31 January (inclusive).

Cockburn Sound is the site of the largest know aggregations of pink snapper in the West Coast Bioregion and is critical for sustaining adequate breeding stocks of these long-lived and slow-growing fish.

It is illegal to be in possession of pink snapper while fishing in the waters of Cockburn and Warnbro sounds during the closed season. However, pink snapper taken outside the sounds may be transported through, and immediately landed within, the area during the closed season.
