A woman has died and a man has been hospitalised after their fishing boat capsized near the Port of Brisbane.

The pair went out on a fishing trip on Saturday and had not returned by 7pm, prompting police involvement.

Queensland Police on Sunday found the 54-year-old man clinging to the upturned boat and he was taken to Princess Alexandra Hospital with hypothermia.

The 48-year-old woman's body was found in the water and recovered. The coroner will now look into the incident.
