Digging for Canning River Blood Worms

Well, just received a telephone call from Nicky, a charming young lass from DPI, who was responding to my email I sent only earlier this morning. Impressive customer service!

I was advised that she had taken the trouble to telephone the Swan River Trust and was advised (and in turn advised me in the telephone call) that you CAN dig for worms, as long as it's 'no more than 5m from the shor line or hanging vegetation' AND that you must replace the 'divit' (what you dug out) back in the hole.

Further, that if you want to dig more than 5m (from as stated), then you need a permit from the Swan River Trust who can be contacted on (08) 9278 0900. (Can't imagine why you would want to be more than 5m out).

So there you go!

Just an update to this old post.

 

The correct information is that you must be more than 5m from vegetation, not less.
