Crayfish to be sold direct from boats to consumers in bid to combat COVID-19 slump

“Boosting the local lobster supply not only helps to keep our commercial fishers on the water but is great for the WA community, with more of our stunning rock lobster available for local consumption,” Mr Tinley said.

“The fleet’s 230 boats in the fishery can land up to 100 lobster each fishing trip to sell from the back of boat, providing a significant increase in supply to the WA community.”

He said the fishery’s sustainability remained a priority and the changes, which were made at the request of the industry, would not impact the future of the resource.

The government also extended the 2021 season to 18 months to bring forward the season quota and minimise the likelihood of whale interaction.
