Sydney Harbour, Tuesday 30th January 2007.

Signs along the shore warn recreational anglers of the danger of eating their catch due to high levels of dioxins found in harbour fish. The government advises no more than 150 grams per month should be consumed. Many anglers return their catch, but it hardly seems worth the effort. I would prefer to eat my catch but I certainly wouldn't eat anything from the harbour. Despite this, fishing on the harbour is still a very popular activity. All commercial fishing on the harbour has been banned since January 2006.
