Illegal fishing kills protected species

Hundreds of fish have been killed and abandoned after being trapped by illegal nets near Bundaberg.

The three gill nets, which require registration and were lain in a non-fishing area, caught several protected species, including a 12 kilogram lungfish.

The nets appear to have been abandoned, since many of the fish were already showing signs of decay.
