We let this crab go free

We are all looking for activities that may be carried out whilst social distancing rules are in place. Fishing is one activity that some of us may wish to undertake. This includes setting crab traps and a fishing licence is required.

There are specific restrictions in place in Port Stephens for crab traps. This is to reduce marine turtle interactions. Crabs may only be taken using modified hoop and lift nets. No part of the net can be suspended above the hoop after the net is set. All entrances are to be less than 320mm and the nets are...

Hi Cove Community - got this from NSW Maritime - hope it helps

Maritime Update

From 31 March 2020 NSW Government Public health directions have been updated requiring people to stay at home unless they have a ‘reasonable excuse’.

However, as there is on land, there are exceptions that apply on water.

If you go out social distancing rules always apply – at the boat ramp and on your boat.

You should only be on your boat alone, or with no more than one other person; or with family who ordinarily live in the same household as you.
