Stonefish - 17.12.09

There have been reports of stonefish at Bargara Basin. Stonefish frequent the rocky shorelines and beaches from Elliott Heads in the South to Burnett Heads in the North.  These fish can be extremely difficult to see in the water and pose the risk of causing serious injury and harm to beach-goers. 

Council urges swimmers to take care when swimming and keep away from rocky areas.  

The fact sheet from Surf Life Saving Australia has some important information on keeping safe.
