Message from Dr Jane Elek

As I can see, once Margiris gets its licence to fish in Australian waters, It will be too late for any protests to have any effect. I read that it is planning to start fishing in the SA Bight before coming to Tassie. 

Message from Nobby Clark

As you'll see from the letter in this link, the South Australian Government has today written to the Federal Government requesting it to prevent the Margiris from fishing Australia's Small Pelagic Fishery.

Email from Eric Abetz - Liberal Senator for Tasmania

Dear Todd
Thanks for your email concerning the Small Pelagic Fishery in
Commonwealth waters.
As somebody that has followed the issues surrounding matters of
fisheries for quite some time, both in a private capacity and as a
former Fisheries Minister and as a Senator for Tasmania, I can let you
know that I do have some understanding of the issues.
