Queensland Harbour Banned for Fishing

Queensland Harbour Banned for Fishing

A very astonishing activity has taken place at the Queensland harbor where about seven fishermen have succumbed to illness after coming in contact with the fishes. Following the report of illness, the Queensland’s Fisheries agency has imposed banned fishing at Queensland harbour.

The cause behind their illness has not been uncovered. However, an investigation over the case has begun. As a part of the investigation, the Biosecurity Queensland has taken samples from 10 fishes.

Information about the fishermen falling ill was made public by Gladstone mayor Gail Sellers on Wednesday. The fishermen were required to be admitted to the hospital but now they have been reported of doing quite well.

It has been reported that a committee will be established which will be holding conference on daily basis to make the public aware about happening of the case. Unless and until the cause behind fishermen’s illness is not gauged, ban over the harbour will remain intact. Fisheries officials are patrolling on the harbour to make sure that nobody fishes in the infected area.

Meanwhile, it has come to light that on Gladstone port about four liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants will be established.
