As Akerman says, “FANCY a nice piece of fish, caught by an Aussie fisherman off the Australian coast? Well, get down to your local fish-and-chip shop now or call a fisho, if you know one, because big multi-national environmental groups are bankrolling a campaign that will wreck the industry.
Misguided officials in state governments and Canberra are already well on the way to demolishing fisheries around the continent, locking them up in a network of marine parks that will destroy what remains of the coastal fishing industry.”
Where will our fish come from if these marine parks go ahead? From south-east Asia most likely where we have no way of knowing what state of health the environment is that the fish was caught in.
