AFTA is protecting the rights of Australian fishers

Now more that ever the rights of Australian fishers are under threat. Marine Park Lock Outs, threats of Super Trawlers and pressure from anti fishing lobby groups are limiting the ability of Australians to go fishing. If they cant go fishing they don’t buy fishing gear and that directly affects your bottom line. AFTA directly lobbies Government on these issues to ensure recreational fishing rights are protected and fishing continues to be Australia’s biggest leisure/sport outdoor activity.

AFTA is protecting your markets and business

Economic conditions are tough and our home grown fishing trade sector is under severe pressure from overseas online sales and low value imports. AFTA is working with other retail organisations to ensure there is a level playing field for Australian’s fishing trade sector. This means fighting for issues such as changes to the low value import threshold, more streamlined business regulations and stopping imports of counterfeit products. Its about ensuring Australia’s fishing trade sector maintains a competitive edge.
AFTA has its Head Office in Canberra, just 5 minutes from Parliament House and close to all major Government departments. AFTA has a highly experienced team to ensure that Politicians and decision makers clearly hear the voice of Australia’s recreational fishers and the fishing trade sector that supports them.
