DREDG­ING UP IS­SUES

Pinjarra Murray Times - - OPINION -

THE an­nounce­ment that the City of Man­durah is about to dredge chan­nels in the Peel and Harvey Es­tu­ar­ies cre­ates quite a co­nun­drum for lo­cal fish­ers and crab­bers.

This dredg­ing method will cre­ate a submersible acid rain­storm in­side the tidal wa­ters, poi­son­ing the flood­ing and eb­bing tides back and forth through the chan­nels be­ing dredged.

In the es­tu­ar­ies we are pro­tected from the ocean and can hunt fishes and crabs to eat.
