Rex Hunt, fish'n for a fight

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 29 August, 2012 - 11:19 AM
Fired up and over here. Rex Hunt will head a rally today aimed at stopping planed fish sanctuaries going ahead.

Australian fishing icon Rex Hunt has put out a passion filled plea for Perth's fishing enthusiasts to join him on the Esplanade today to protest the federal government's new marine parks plan. Steve Mills spoke to Rex ahead of his protest rally which will begin at 4pm on the Esplanade today (29th August).

Areas that will be open to recreational fishing under final marine resources plan.

  • Sounds like another Greens/Environmental policy combined with another UN Sustainability instruction. How dare they when they do nothing about the foreign long lines and trawlers fishing us out of business.
    Then have permitted foreign mining off our beaches in Marg River and other south west regions. Enough is Enough.

  • I appreciate the "Fish for the Future" program. Fishers of WA in the majority obey the rules as they can see the benefits. The closed season make sense as do the restrictions on size and bag limits. The threat of increased restriction to WA waters has not been thought through clearly by our Pollies. Fishing tackle is taxed to pay for these studies.. Fishos don't mind. If that is what the government are doing with these taxes. What confuses me is that while this talk is going on the same government taking our taxes is permitting the FV Margiris (a "super trawler") into our waters. The fishing quota for this vessel is NOT set by the government (according to a ABC report last night) the quota is set by the owners of the vessel, some 45,000 tonnes to break even but they are targeting a possible 140,000 tonnes. The vessel does not discriminate. It takes everything in its path. The target fish taken by this vessel are migratory fish? The fish taken by FV Margiris will not make it to WA to feed the fish stocks over here? What will the larger paraplegics have to eat if the smaller mackerel are taken? Removing the minimum 45,000 tones of these smaller fish MUST have a negative impact on fish stocks throughout Australia. We are "Girt by sea" and we MUST look after it and what is in it. We should not let a "non Australian company" (owners of FV Margiris) determine or dictate what we do with the Australian environment or the fish stocks within our waters. Come on "Pollie" think of the Australian people. I want to fish with my grand children and teach them how not to rape and pillage like FV Margiris?

  • Go Rex! Everyone who cares about the right of West Australians to decide where they can or can't fish should get down to the rally planned at Langley Park at 4pm today.
