Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Dr Barry Pollock
25 Uther Street
Carindale Qld

Total Signatures - 1753

Sponsoring Member: Tim Nicholls MP

Posting Date: 23/12/2010

Closing Date: 14/02/2011

Tabled Date: 10/05/2011

Responded By: Hon Craig Wallace MP on 31/05/2011

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland Residents draws to the attention of the House: that recreational fishing enthusiasts are opposed to the introduction of any additional fishing permit or licence fees, of a general or species specific nature that relate to snapper.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to:


  1. Conduct further studies before implementing any permanent changes to snapper fisheries management.
  2. Acknowledge the social and economic value to Queenslanders of freely available recreational fishing opportunities for snapper.
