The facts

Marine Parks as a concept is a good thing. The most wonderful thing about living in Australia is the marine environment.

The natural beauty, quality of environment and abundance of unique marine life is certainly something worth protecting.

The policy of green groups to lock recreational anglers out of vast areas in order to provide that protection is an absolute nonsense.

Under current legislations it is very rare for a rec fisher to damage the environment in the pursuit of their pastime.

Current bag and size limits ensure that rec fishers do not and cannot affect fish stocks and no species of fish targeted by rec fishers is in danger of extinction.

Ecofishers believe that any problems occurring in the coastal marine environment come from the land. Urban and industrial pollution, flooding and storm run off, agricultural fertilizers and chemicals, poor commercial fishing management and natural disasters.
