  1. Tasmanian weather set to get wild. (During the next century anyway) TASMANIANS can expect more intense rainfall episodes and more hot days and warm nights as the climate changes throughout this century, a new report out yesterday shows. The Climates Futures for Tasmania technical report on extreme events found that the effects of climate change on weather will vary depending on the region. "Extremely wet days will increase in the South-West and North-East, averaging up to seven days per year, which is about a 25 per cent increase," said the report's lead author, Chris White. However, the number of rainy days across the state is expected to decrease, with the greatest decline in the North-West. Dr White said hot summer days and heatwaves would get more frequent. "The number of summer days [warmer than 25C] is projected to double or triple in some regions. Some areas of Tasmania will get 40 additional summer days a year by the end of the century." The Climate Futures for Tasmania project, managed by the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre, is the State Government's most important source of climate change information at a local scale. Climate Change Minister Cassy O'Connor said the project was crucial. "The report outlines projections for extreme tide and sea-level events, severe wind gusts in a changing climate, and flooding in Tasmanian rivers," she said. "The report also includes information on coastal vulnerabilities and projected climate-change impacts on infrastructure, which is all essential information to be used for sea-level rise inundation mapping and in regional planning by local government." The report can be found at www.climatechange. tas.gov.au

    Tasmanian SMP count down!!

    This morning I got this mail from Tasmania: Dear Sir/Madam Tasmania’s SMP will be launched within the next 10 days, so please check our website regularly for new assessment requirements. Application form was available on the website during the suspension period, because we only suspended offshore applications and have been accepting onshore applications. Regards, So who counts with me? 10..... :jiggy:
  4. :huh:Get the feeling I'm the only one who's waiting for the Tasmanian SMP... :huh:

    Tasmanian fishing

    Fishing in Tasmania On average, Tasmanians own more boats than other Australians do and land more fish per hour of angling. Go to sea in search of tuna or other game fish, work the estuaries and beaches for flathead, couta and Australian salmon, or catch wild brown and rainbow trout in the lakes and rivers. Game fishing in TasmaniaTasmanian game-fishing waters stretch from Flinders Island in the north all the way down the east coast to the Tasman Peninsula and hold more than 20 national gamefish records, including world records for southern bluefin tuna with fish of up to 120kg. From late December to June the currents flowing down the coast of the mainland raise the Tasmanian east coast water temperature to as high as 23 degrees celsius. With the currents come marlin, tuna and shark. During the season the challenges on offer include striped marlin, broadbill swordfish, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, albacore tuna and mako sharks. Trout fishing in TasmaniaTasmania’s many rivers, streams, lakes and tarns are part of a beautiful, unspoilt environment that attracts fishermen from around the world. Tasmania offers the freedom to fish just about anywhere at any time with solitude guaranteed by countless remote waters. The pure air, clean skies and unique fauna and flora are all part of the experience. The season in Tasmania runs from August to April. December to April are the best months. Fly rods in the five to seven weight range and/or light two to three kilogram spin rods are all that is needed. Tasmania holds its head high in regard to quite a few saltwater fisheries. For many years Tasmania has had recreational bag limits for all game fish and in 2001 introduced bag limits for all saltwater species. Whilst some recreational netting is still allowed it is banned in almost all bays, rivers and estuaries - as is commercial netting. Tasmania holds several world records for southern bluefin tuna including a fish of 108 kilograms on 15 kilogram line. Although good numbers of fish had not been caught for several years, 2001 saw the return of some great gamefishing return off Tasman Peninsula. Whilst St Helens is largely regarded as the game fishing capital of Tasmania, Tasman Peninsula rules the roost for bluefin. Large yellowfin tuna, striped marlin, albacore, striped tuna and mako sharks are also available on the east coast from Flinders Island to Tasman Peninsula. In recent times professional charter operators have developed this fishery with most operating from St Helens. Striped marlin are perhaps the most sought after prize and in recent years the numbers caught every year are increasing. Southern black bream are another fish eagerly sought in Tasmania. These are mostly an east and northern coast fish that grow to well over three kilograms. Nowhere else in Australia is the average size as big and a genuine four pound fish is well within the reach of keen anglers. Little Swanport and Ansons Bay are hot spots for big bream. Susie:wubclub:
