Live for fishing and fishing for living

Manager Will Neill said that fishing in the Great Barrier Reef is an incredible business environment.

"We see the flip side," he said.

"During the last winds, we had to reef.

"We were the only ship in the last blow, and we have to wait five days to clear it."

Articles Maharani There are seven crews, one captain, deckhand, and five fishermen who go to sea twice at a time.

"We have about 120 nautical miles from Gladstone, and we're heading for 18 to 26 hours," Mr Neill said.

"Every year about 18 times we will be rescued and we will be pretty much in the air."

Fishermen work their skins by using their hands to catch about 30-50 fish a day.

"In a good run we will have 2000 fish: coral trout, red imperial, sweetlip, parrot, hussar, ribbon, red throat, red emperor, cod, trevally and Spanish mackarel."

"Sometimes we will not get anything in the field, and we'll come back a week later, and kids will catch 50 fish every day."

Most of the fish are processed and frozen in the sea, but the coral trout Maharani is kept in a large living tank.

"The tank is large, it manages the length of the ship," said Mr. Neill.

"Live coral trout goes to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, and about 22 percent are exported to Hong Kong.

"Our whole frozen product is about 25 tons per year, going to local fish markets."

According to him, fishermen spend most of their time fishing in the reef.

Mr Neill said, "Swains are too great, and we rarely see other boats out there."

"This is particularly a matter of good weather."
