5% of Victorians Fish

Postby mrfisho Fri Jan 15, 2016 4:01 pm

Listening to 3AW this morning and a Pro Fisher was on there saying how wrong it was that 5% of the Victorian population can stop to rest of Victorians have fresh fish and CHEAPER fish than imported fish... Not sure where he gets local fish are cheap ...
I thought it was more like 1/3 rd of the Victorian population fish ?

Cheers
Mick

Local fish are cheap!!!LOL Ive seen whiting and flattie fillets for $50 a kilo!

Down at the Queen victoria markets there is lots of fresh fish and most of it isnt caught in port phillip bay,just another pro exaggerating facts to put fear in people.

There will allways be fresh avaliable to the public,so many more places for the pros to fish than PPB.

If it was 1/3, that would mean there were 2 million rec fishers in the state of Vic.

The current pro rec fishing campaign is target 1 million, so I doubt 1/3 is correct.

Not sure how they could predict the total number of rec fishers anyway, since pensioners don't need to buy a fishing licence.

I'm a werribee local and the news is the netters just cleaned out our healthy KGW population here so I am felling pretty pissed with these bay rapists right now.

Yep sounds right Thomas I was actually thinking 770,000 was a figure quoted somewhere . Much more than the 5% ..

Pretty close Mick. The latest figures (Nov. 2015) are 838,000. With a
population of 5.9 Million, that works out at about 14 percent.
But as Wavethumper said lots of pensioners fish and don't need to buy a licence, so how would they really know.

Geoff.
