WITH a promised consultation process on the bag and size limit of mulloway in NSW, the NSW Recreational Fishing Alliance says anglers need to be asking more questions of researchers and scientists about what we should be doing to make better informed decisions about the mulloway's future in NSW.
The latest NSW RFA newsletter highlights some interesting facts from experienced scientists and researchers on the subject of mulloway aka jewfish in NSW.
We thought we'd share with readers some of the interesting feedback garnered from these boffins on the subjects of commercial fishing for immature jewies and raising size limits:
From the above it's not difficult to conclude that a slot limit for jewfish is a logical and sensible step, for example from 70 cm – 1 metre and we all have to let the rest go - including commercial fishers.
Stay tuned for more on this issue.
