Information

Bribie Island Fish habitat consists of 10,131 hectares in the Pumicestone Passage between the mainland and Bribie Island, and most of Bribie Island foreshore. The habitat was first declared in 1969 (original declaration of Pumicestone Passage Reserve). On the 17 November 1983 the Bribie Island Reserve was declared, and both were combined in 1998 to form a single declared habitat. One of the most significant recreational fishing habitats in Queensland.

This was done for the long-term protection and maintenance of mud crab habitat and recreational fishery for whiting; commercial ocean beach mullet; Australian bass, bream, blue salmon, estuary cod, flathead, garfish, jewfish, luderick, mangrove jack, sea mullet, tailor, whiting, mud crabs, sand crabs, banana prawns, school and greasyback prawns, eastern king prawns, and bay prawns.
