Recreational Net Fishing Ban

Hi, as many will know Tasmania has the most outdated rules in regard to recreational netting in Australia. We would like to change that. As has been clearly demonstrated - any area from which nets have been removed the fishing has improved. We all want fishing to improve. Supporting a recreational netting ban will do that. The Scalefish Plan review which is underway now gives us that chance. 
We are not targeting commercial operations in regard to netting at this stage, but may look at them in the near future. 
Please read the attached carefully, pass it on to as many people as you possibly can and reply to me with your supporting comment, or disagreement. We are happy to hear both sides. We will also post this on and our Facebook page (links in my signature below).
Let's have a better fishery for our kids and grandchildren.
