Goolwa Beach reopens for recreational Pipi (Goolwa Cockle) fishing on Saturday 25 February 2017.
PIRSA Fisheries and Aquaculture closed the beach to recreational Pipi fishing on 8 January following the detection of E.coli levels above what is considered safe for human consumption.
The water and shellfish quality has now returned to a normal level allowing for the beach to reopen and declared safe for recreational fishers to collect and eat Pipi.
The Pipi season is open to recreational fishers from 1 November to 31 May.
PIRSA will continue to monitor the area through the South Australian Shellfish Quality Assurance Program.
A minimum size limit for Pipi of 3.5cm applies, as well as a daily bag limit of 300 per person and a vehicle limit of 900 where three or more people are present.
Recreational fishing for Pipis is prohibited year-round on the Younghusband Peninsula (Coorong Beach) between the Murray Mouth and 28 Mile Crossing.
