Please find attached today’s media release: This election is a referendum on your fishing rights
The Australia Recreational Fishing Foundation (ARFF), the peak national body representing Australia’s recreational fishing community says this Saturday’s election is a referendum on the fishing rights of Australia’s 5 million recreational fishers.
Allan Hansard, Managing Director of ARFF said “The future of fishing in Australia is at stake this election. On one hand you have Labor and the Greens who will lock Australia’s recreational fishers out of 1.3 million hectares of our seas without any ‘proof of arm’. There’s the potential of more lockouts at sea and on land to come.
