Marine Park

The Marine Park issue obviously concerns us. There were concerns about the confusion - some of it based on lack of information from NPWS and others seemingly deliberately spread to obscure the issues. We resolved to write a letter to NPWS and possibly put in the Echo asking for clearer information. Points for the letter included:

  • We support scientific evaluation of what level of fishing is appropriate for the area.
  • We think its a good idea, and believe that most of the area agree, to remove some uses from the area, specifically: Spear Fishing; Jet Skiing; Trap Fishing; Trawling of breeding grounds; Sand dredging; Vehicles on the beach and Commercial netting off the beach.
  • We are supportive of other uses specifically: Recreational fishing on the beach provided its at a sustainable level.
  • We think it important to focus the debate on the few controversial issues such as dogs on the beach.
  • We are concerned that the estuaries - Belongil and Brunswich River - are not adequately covered.
