Aandtsociety marine species collecting trips in Aus

Message  pkc le Lun 22 Juin - 23:20

Hi forum folk.

The society’s name is actually-The Aquarium and Terrarium Society of Queensland


We are a very old club, first established in 1920s though over the last 10 to 12 years we have depleted greatly in drive and numbers as a result of not initially taking on the internet to remain a part of the changing ways in which clubs function these days.


We have something we do very well as a result of many years of experience and that is snorkelling trips for mainly marine aquarium life for our hobbies, though we do have a few freshwater trips as well.

The value of seeing and interacting with our marine creatures is invaluable to the hobby and also enables us to remain aware of the constant stresses on our local ocean and its estuaries in the global climate changes these days.

As a club we have around three trips a year and the members have roughly two trips per month.

Sometimes there are three, sometimes there are ten members on there trips.

Normally we go snorkelling as that is the only way in Queensland we can legally collect for our hobby and on some of the trips a member or two will have a spear fish and others will have a look around on scuba, but cannot collect.

We do shore free dives and boat free dives when we snorkel for our hobby species, from October to May, depending on the oceans temps at the time and they are changing a great deal.

Through the cooler months the low tides are quite low because of the warmer month’s sun position so we do low tide trips to rock pools or mud flats incorporating picnics as such.

So far this season we have had, as a club, two trips and the member’s trips add up to around eleven so far.

In the distant past there were quite a lot of boat owners in the marine group branch of the society, so they mainly went on trips to places like flinders reef and old woman island,both,in there day, magnificent dive and snorkel sites and offered very similar forms of life as the barrier reef.

The photos that follow are just a few of what we do as we only started taking photos nearly three years ago and basic videos the start of this year.

What we have already experienced before this time is truly amazing and it is a shame there are no photos of the things we saw and experienced back than.

We have a ball on our trips so we hope you enjoy the small part of it that we are placing here.

Thanks for the text and all the pictures. I'll watch the videos later.

One question: in France, we cannot catch fish alive or any other animal to bring back home and keep in aquarium. Do you have such a legislation in Australia or is it totally different?

I translate for my french fellows:
Je demande donc à PKC si en Australie ils ont le droit de ramener les poissons chez eux, ou s'il y a la même législation qu'en France, puisque chez nous il est interdit de ramener les poissons pour les placer en aquarium.

Yes, totaly different.
In France, you cannot take any live fish to keep in an aquarium. No matter if you caught it in a protected area or not, it's the same everywhere. You're authorized to kill it when fishing, but out of question to bring it back alive. This is nonsense, but unfortunately that's the law.

I think you can post more pictures, people seem to like them. Thank you!
If you have anything on freshwater or brackishwater fishes, please post here: Other freshwater fishes
Personnaly, I really enjoy Mogurnda species and other Eleotrids.
