Squid ban proposed

Comment is being sought on a proposal to temporarily close the calamari fishery on the North Coast. 

The Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment said the closure would ensure the long-term sustainability of the calamari fishery.

It is proposed the closure will be between October 6 to October 22 and align with the spawning period for the species in the north.
