WA Government fishing package - fish for the future

Western Australia’s coastline between Lancelin and south of Mandurah will become an exclusive zone for recreational line fishing under a State Government move to avoid the overfishing of iconic fish.

In making the announcement, Fisheries Minister Jon Ford said the Metropolitan Fishing Zone would exclude all commercial line and net fishing of demersal finfish in a significant measure that demonstrates the WA Government’s commitment to ensuring sustainability of fish stocks.

“Creating this Metropolitan Fishing Zone is one of the world’s most innovative moves to make sure our grandkids can still catch these iconic fish in years to come,” he said.

Is there any chance the next generation of Scottish children will be in a similar position ??
