More than 2 months have passed since I reported witnessing several youths carrying hand spears at Second Valley in January & nothing seems to have been done about it at all. No FishWatch officer was immediately available to take the report on the January incident and investigate the matter at the time. Two attempts to report the matter to FishWatch resulted in ‘blank looks’ from operators having no knowledge of a spearfishing ban at Second Valley, even though such a ban was proclaimed in March 1992. Signage regarding the spearfishing ban in the area was no longer evident and needs to be replaced. I returned to the location at the end of March to find that there is still no signage. There has not been any further contact from FishWatch since making my report.
