Time to fish again

The West Australian - - LETTERS -

NSW has spent about $16 mil­lion in mea­sures to con­trol their shark num­bers (News, 17/5). If they had put shark back on the menu they could have made money by sell­ing the healthy meat and cre­ated lo­cal jobs. Where is the ev­i­dence that the great white shark pop­u­la­tion off the WA coast would be­come en­dan­gered if we re­sumed com­mer­cial fish­ing? In the ab­sence or any di­rect ev­i­dence we should be al­lowed to re­sume fish­ing.
