WA Demersal Issue Action Plan

Recently I represented AFTA on the WA Demersal Cutback issue in Perth, teaming up with AFTA Members: Tim Farnell, Red Mullet Distributors & West Australian Family Fishing Alliance (WARFFA), Brian Marshall, Compleat Angler Nedlands and Ash Ramm, Tackle World Miami for meetings with Dr Andrew Rowland, RecFishWest, and then WA Minister for Fisheries, Don Punch.

As a part of the campaign, we undertook tackle store visits to both AFTA member stores and non-member stores as it critical at this time that we unite to present our industry’s best case to government on minimising the impact of reductions that will come from their sustainable management options for Dhufish & Pink Snapper in WA based on the Harvest Strategy.
