Offshore league, leg 1 was fished on Saturday and some nice yellowfin and longfin were caught in the deep.

There are lots of pictures and commentary on the Cape Boat facebook page.

Pictures attached are of Derek Kaplan, on Nenya - he had open heart surgery just over a year ago and this is the first big fish he has caught since then – very happy his ticker held out. He was ecstatic.

The Australian population of the southern bluefin tuna (SBT), once considered near-extinction, is in recovery according to a government report.

According to the latest Status of Australian Fish Stock (SAFS) report, released by the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC) on Thursday, SBT stocks have been rated as recovering.'
The recovery of the species, which remains critically endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List of Threatened species, has been attributed to Tuna Champions, a program that encourages fishers to reduce unnecessary SBT deaths and teaches them how to catch, handle, keep, prepare or release the tuna so that it isn't wasted.

An initiative of the Australian Recreational Fishing Foundation (ARFF) and the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS), Tuna Champions is funded by the government through the FRDC.

"It's about making sure they have the best information, based on the research, to fish responsibly and to respect the animal whether it's to catch a feed, or to enjoy the experience with friends and release the fish in a way that gives it the best chance of surviving," IMAS researcher Sean Tracey said in a media release.

After more than twenty years SBT moves from depleted to recovering. Recent assessments have shown clear progress towards the rebuilding target set by the Commission for the Conservation of Southern Bluefin Tuna (CCSBT) to guide the recovery of the biological stock to 20 per cent of unfished biomass by 2035. We are not there yet, but from all accounts we are well on our way to achieving that target before 2035.
