The Whyalla cuttlefish closure area in Spencer Gulf has been extended for the 2012 breeding season. The closure extension area starts at the Point Lowly Lighthouse and follows the eastern boundary of the existing closure area. Extending 100 metres offshore from the high water mark, the closure follows the coastline to a point 100 metres south of the boat ramp breakwater near Point Lowly. The temporary closure bans recreational and commercial fishing for all cephalopods (including cuttlefish, squid and octopus) in the area, until 30th September 2012.
