GREENS, THE REAL THREAT TO RECREATIONAL FISHING
November 22, 2010
This year’s Federal and State election campaigns have seen barbs traded between political parties and some independents over a proposed increase in marine parks and the direct threat to recreational and commercial fishing.
The truth has gone missing in both election campaigns and a flyer circulated in East Gippsland last week belongs in the fiction category of our local libraries.
In the recent Federal campaign the Greens supported a policy that would ban fishing in 30% of Australia’s territorial waters.
