A fisherman found an “ugly” fish net on a beach in a remote corner of Queensland’s South West last week.
Key points:Fish net found on Queensland’s North West beachThis was discovered by a fisherman and sent to a regional marine science centreFish net was found to be around two metres in length and was washed up on a rural Queensland beachA Queensland Marine Science Centre spokeswoman says the nets are “not normally a problem for people”The nets were washed up along the beach by a beachgoer on Friday morning, the ABC reported.
“There was a small bag floating in the water, but the bag was in such a condition that it was quite obvious that it wasn’t a normal fishing net,” Queensland Marine Services spokeswoman Catherine Tisdale said.
“It was pretty evident from the size of the net that it didn’t have a fish in it.”
We had to get some help from the beachgoers to get the bag out of the water.
“The net was a two metre long “bikini fish net”, which the ABC identified as an “uppermost layer” of dead fish.”
That is actually where it comes in, the uppermost layer of dead food,” Ms Tisdal said.
