Replacement abalone fishing hour scheduled

Abalone fishers in the West Coast Bioregion will be pleased to hear an extra fishing hour has been scheduled for the Saturday, 9 March to replace the hour cancelled on Saturday, 12 January.

Since the previous day was cancelled, Recfishwest have been working with the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development to ensure the additional hour was scheduled, given catch levels are within the sustainable target level.

Recfishwest are pleased to also receive the recommendation from Surf Life Saving WA for this weekend’s scheduled fishing hour to proceed as planned between 7am to 8am.

As always, Recfishwest remind fishers to check the weather before heading out, ensure they have the right equipment, take advice from Surf Life Saving and don’t take unnecessary risks.
