East coast black jewfish fishery CLOSED

The annual catch limit for the east coast has been reached. Black jewfish is a no-take species on the east coast for all fishers for the rest of the 2022 calendar year.

Queenslanders love their fishing! To make sure there are plenty of fish for everyone, we have sensible limits in place. Most of us follow the rules, and if we keep doing the right thing we can all keep fishing.
