Fish species off limits for two five day closures

CORAL reef fin fish will be off limits from Friday as the first of two annual closures that protect these fish during spawning season starts.

Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol district officer Tony Loader said the two five- day closures coincided with the new moon when key species aggregated to spawn.

"October and November have been found to be the most effective months for closures to protect coral reef fin fish."
