DYNAMITE FISHING IN CANBERRA
One for the fishermen. Apparently in the 1930's quite an illegal fishing operation existed in Canberra. High volumes of trout were removed via traps, drum nets and amazingly dynamite from all the rivers and streams within 40 miles (60 km) of Canberra. It would appear to have been a commercial volume poaching operation...
