Parks Victoria have advised that the annual summer ‘aquatic vegetation harvest’ on Albert Park Lake will commence on Monday 5 February 2018. The harvester will commence at the southern end of the lake, then progress to the northern sections over 8- 10 working days. Albert Sailing Club has provided input which suggests harvesting in northern basin in front of sailing clubs and areas around Gunn Island should be priority areas.
