The story behind those undersized crays

 Undersized Crayfish Seized by Police

At around 2.50am on Wednesday 26 October 2016, Geraldton Police had cause to stop a vehicle and speak to the occupants.

During the stop police observed Crayfish Antennae protruding from a bag. The bag contained a number of undersized Crayfish. A further search of the vehicle was conducted where a second bag was found also containing Crayfish.

The investigation has been handed over to the Department of Fisheries.

ABC: Farm Fish Harvest in Geraldton

A great short video from ABC Mid West, on Yellowtail Kingfish being bred in Geraldton. 

Midwest aquaculture trial harvest: Thousands of Yellow Tail Kingfish ready to hit the Australian market Fifteen thousand fat and healthy Yellow Tail Kingfish currently swim in Geraldton's Champion Bay waiting to be delivered to a local restaurant and markets in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. Indian Ocean Fresh Australia have been working with the Mid West Development Commission to determine if it is commercially viable to farm fish in the pristine waters off Geraldton's coast.

Fascinating look beneath the waves by a local crayfisher

This video was produced by Chris Lewis from ABC Open Midwest.  

It's a beautiful and fascinating look at what goes on under the surface with footage taken by local crayfisher Zack Mankelow.  

Set to a beautiful sound track, and with interview footage of Zack the video shows some absolutely stunning marine life. Keep an eye out for the very rare Sun Fish that Zack managed to video. 

Francis Street Finger Jetty to be replaced

Boarding and disembarking from boats at the Francis Street Finger Jetty located at Town Beach will get a whole lot easier once construction of a new jetty is completed by the end of June. 

At last week’s Council meeting the contract to demolish the existing jetty and build a new one was awarded to SMC Marine Pty Ltd, a company highly experienced in jetty construction. 

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the replacement of the jetty means the City will be able to provide improved access to users including people with mobility impairments.

“The new jetty will be approximately 39m long and features 1.3m wide stepped deck configuration that provides increased access for people with mobility impairments whilst enabling easier boarding and disembarking from boats and other recreational water craft,” he said.

Construction of the replacement jetty is estimated to take 13 weeks to complete.  The existing jetty wood decking and chafers will be stored at the depot for potential reuse.

During construction the Town Beach boat ramp will be closed to the public to ensure community safety at all times.  Recreational watercraft users are encouraged to use the boat ramps at the Batavia Coast Marina during this time.

Largest Cray Boat in WA ready to go - Video

It’s believed to be the largest cray boat in WA, and it’s nearly ready to go. Sea trials have been completed, and the Day Dawn is expected to be in the water fishing next week. 
Thanks Hayden for these pic and vids. 
The boat apparently has three tv’s and queensized beds. Thumbs up to all involved, including Xtreme Marine, Dongara Marine and Geraldton Marine Electronics.
