Your View: Rec fishing

RECREATIONAL Fishing by Kym Woolford (YPCT 10-4-18) typifies the view we have had to endure ever since Trevor Watts retired as executive officer of South Australian Recreational Fishing Advisory Council in 2011.

Mr Woolford’s accusation Les Rochester infers representation of all SA anglers is clearly unsupported by the article. But then Mr Woolford writes, “I and the majority of recreational fishers”.  Exactly which majority is that?

Mr Woolford should focus on Mr Rochester’s comment, “Integrity, transparency and good science behind any future management arrangements for this state’s fish stocks.”

If Mr Woolford can compose a reply based on those principles we will be most keen to receive it and the whole recreational fishing community can finally move forward.
