The Geraldton Guardian THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1948 THE CRAYFISHING INDUSTRY [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 5 February 1948

She -gentfdfot!-gttttrtian j ? ! THURSDAY. FEBRUARY ',, UMS j THE CRAYFISHING INDUSTRY The red light of warning has bei'ti ? hoisted in respect to the crayfishing industry, and it would be well if all engaged in it and those entrusted with the power to direct and control its activities pay strict attention to the j immediate and future needs of this enterprise. Only in recent years has the processing of crayfish been placed en a swund economic basis, and it would be a matter for regret if anything were now done to jeopardise the con tinued life of the industry. Contrary to a belief long held in some quarters, supplies of crayfish in the waters adjacent to the Abrolhos Islands are not inexhaustible, and nature has a disturbing habit of bringing- retribution to those who overstep the mark in exploiting its beneficence. This factor was appreciated by certain interests engaged in various aspects of crayfish ing some years ago, and in consequence of representations made to the auth- ! or...

Letters to the Editor Price of Crayfish DENIAL OF RUMORS Sir, — As there seems to be all kinds of rumours floating around the town, esjseciaHy amongst men engaged in iishing and crayfishing and as I seem to be live one selected for special atten tion in this respect I feel it is time that ;t little light was let in on the subject ;f crayfish prices. A meeting was cer tainly held by the buyers of fish and the discussion centred largely on the 'black market' price sought by some vendors. This cannot be attributed to any particular persons, but I would- like to state publicly that I am opposed to the payment of 'black market' prices for lis-ii. Crayfish came under discus sion at this meeting and runx.ur has it. tjiat 1 was mainly responsible for tv prop* '.sal to lower the price. This is an absolute untruth. As a matter of fact I was the first to increase the. price offeivd f-*r crayfish fr-Ui Od. }»er Ih. to Sd. per 1b. last year, and this year to JM. per lb. 1 am delinitely opposed t...
