Media Release - 19 November
With the two-year ban ending yesterday, the Stop the Trawler Alliance is calling for urgent action by the Federal Government to permanently ban super trawlers from Australian waters.
Media Release - 20 October
The AFMA organised stakeholder consultation on the Small Pelagic Fishery last Friday was clearly designed as a media platform for the Australian Government to say that they had undertaken consultation with stakeholders. Conservation and recreational fishing groups remain concerned that these box-ticking exercises could be a signal that super trawlers are being considered for introduction into our waters. The groups remain united in the campaign to stop super trawlers being introduced into Australian waters and concerned with the low level of data available on the fishery’s movements and how to avoid localised depletion.
