REFORM CONCERNS... Local fishers including Russell Boord, of Edithburgh, Shane Bishop, of Yorketown, and Amanda Wheeler, of Port Victoria, are concerned about proposed marine scale fishery reforms and have revived the SYP Professional Fishers Association.

Fishing plans leave professionals reeling

LOCAL fishers believe reforms mooted for marine scale fisheries, including the introduction of quotas, could go too far and force fishers out of the industry.

Members of the Southern Yorke Peninsula Fishers Association say this will have a flow-on effect in regional communities.

The association had been inactive for 24 years but grave concerns about the state government’s plans have led to its revival.

    Its about time professional fishers were accountable, as the resource is not unlimited and belongs to everyone. Being a professional fisherman allows you to sell your catch, not own the resource.
    Don't forget the tourist dollar that will greatly increase if the resource increases.
