A Message for the new Premier

Recommended Posts


A policy that would create massive approval across Sydney is an examination of the commercial fishing regulations for Pittwater and the Hawksbury River.

Currently commercial fishing is allowed and the methods employed by these fishermen is drag netting or Trawling.
This technique results in killing everything in the net.
So all bycatch is killed, and the end result is an unproductive fishery.
A Recreational fishery in the middle of Sydney would be a far more productive use of the resource.
The economic benefits would be far reaching, from boating services to fishing tackle.
Not to mention all the happy Sydneysiders.
This could be a ground breaking policy.

I really can't see the downside in banning all commerial fishing in Pittwater and the Hawksbury.
