BAN PRO NETTING
I TOTALLY agree with David Cook (Letters, July 6) on the matter of gillnetting.
In areas around Australia they have and still are banning netters and this should be happening in and around the Shire.
You haven’t been able to catch a decent size fish up the inlet for many years and this is due to netters.
If nothing is done ASAP there will be nothing left for our kids.
To buy fish from a seafood outlet is so expensive because of the decline in fish numbers.
So come on Douglas Shire and councillors please start doing something about it and ban netters and some commercial fishers from our shire.
