Frequently asked questions
Ensure you have a copy of the Moreton Bay Marine Park user guide . Zone boundaries are, where possible based on simple shapes with north/south and east/west bearings or natural features such as the edge of mangroves. Areas near the coast are aligned with landmarks where feasible. There are signs that mark many of the green zone boundaries.
A summary of the coordinates is available so that you can copy manually into your GPS software. In addition a number of GPS equipment suppliers have products for purchase with current zoning and designated go slow areas within the Moreton Bay Marine Park.
What is one hook?
Refer to page 6 of the user guide. One hook includes a ganged hook set of up to 6 adjoined hooks.
Fishing equipment allowed
There is no limit to the amount of rods and fishing equipment you can have in your boat in a green zone as long as the rods are in holders, or wholly inside the boat and the hooks are secured to the rod. In other words, it should be obvious that the equipment is not being used. Check Fisheries legislation for any additional equipment restrictions.
More than two rods in yellow zone
Any fishing equipment that can't be used while in a conservation park (yellow) zone must be stowed and secured in the boat. Similar to a green zone this means the additional rods are in holders, or wholly inside the boat and the hooks are secured to the rod.
