• The lobsters look similar to Tasmanian lobsters, which begs the questions:

How are the new Lobster export supply chain protocols coming along?

Will there be another “ban”?

    Wow, our lobsters just don’t have enough dioxin in them. Better get the green groups on to that one Lara.

    If they are from Tassie, they look big enough to have come from a marine park. Doesn’t happen? In the meanwhile does anybody know of the outcome of an inquiry into the loss of our fisheries surveillance boat out of St Helens?
