Lobster pots …

An important target species for the Port Fairy fishing fleet is the ever popular crayfish, more properly the Southern Rock Lobster, Jasus edwardsii. They are caught in pots set in relatively shallow water.

Some pots were under construction when I was there a few days ago.

In the first photo you can see a bundle of Cypress Pine soaking in the river. Up on the wharf there is a metal stand with a pot in the early phase of construction.

The second photo shows some pots nearer completion. There is about three and a half hours work in each pot.
