No Tuna for Portland Fishers (Yet)

According to media reports,  recreational fishermen in Portland  are missing the start of the tuna season because of  a chemical leak from a Koppers facility near the town's port.

The Country Fire Authority today advised that it was still not safe for boats to launch at the Port of Portland and that the ban could be in place possibly up until this Saturday.

Locals report that this is particularly annoying because of reports that there are a large schools of tuna currently arriving in the area. Many are cross because commercial operations at the port continue and its only the recreational fishermen who appear to still have their activities restricted.
