Rubbish a concern for the emerging family fishery at Lake Kara
During a routine check of access facilities, IFS staff recently removed five garbage bags of rubbish from numerous campsites around Lake Kara. Items included large amounts of nappies and human faecal matter as well as fishing line and bait packaging.
The amount of rubbish left behind indicates this behaviour is not limited to just a few uncaring individuals and appears to unfortunately be widespread amongst anglers at this lake. The future of this potentially exciting fishery is firmly in the hands of the angling public.
Please make sure you take your rubbish with you when you leave. If you see a littering offense being committed call the Litter Hotline on 1300 135 513 or fill in a report form on the EPA website www.epa.tas.gov.au/regulation/report-littering
