There were 1231 LIVE FISH caught, weighed in and released at the two weigh in stations over the HookUp weekend!
We had a few enquiries over the event as to why HookUp doesn’t have more brag mat Catch & Release categories for Live Fish. DID YOU KNOW:
🐟 The live fish released from the two weigh-in locations at Bray Park, Boyne Island and VMR Gladstone creates an opportunity to re-stock our waterways with diverse species of fish.
🐟 Live fish weighed in at the HookUp weigh-in stations are tagged for Infofish Australia.
🐟 The fish health data collected by Infofish Australia is included in the Gladstone Healthy Harbour Partnership’s annual Gladstone Harbour Report Card! The GHHP Report Card assesses and reports on the health of the Gladstone Harbour. If you would like to learn more about the health of our harbour and the fish health results, go check out their most recent report card at www.ghhp.org.au.
