Australia’s government repeals plans that proposed to close more than 500,000 square miles of marine waters to recreational fishing.

 

 

” In a move lauded by the American Sportfishing Association (ASA), newly elected leadership in Australia’s government announced that it will repeal the management plans that proposed to close more than 500,000 square miles of marine waters to recreational fishing. Australia’s government will redraft management plans that established the world’s largest system of marine reserve parks.

“ The global recreational fishing community should take a moment to appreciate this landmark move by the Australian government to correct the ill-conceived decision to close public waters to recreational fishing,” said ASA President and CEO Mike Nussman. “Australia’s efforts to establish a massive network of marine parks did not sufficiently recognize the social, economic and conservation benefits of recreational fishing, causing great concern to everyone involved in recreational fishing.” “

The city agreed to overturn the bra ban, which means Skowronski will get to re-hang the bras that hundreds of women have left there over the years.”
