Remove the 12-month Eastern Blue Groper fishing ban

Petitioner: Mr Anthony Ford | Member: Banasiak, Mark | No. of Signatories: 2,086 | Date closes: 12/06/2024 | Status: Open
To the President and Members of the Legislative Council, the petitioners of New South Wales state that the 12-month ban from 1 March 2024 of taking Eastern Blue Groper by any method, including line fishing is unjustified and was enacted without any stock assessment. The petitioners request that the House call on the government to reinstate proper fisheries management based on science and remove the 12-month trial ban until a proper stock assessment of the Eastern Blue Groper is undertaken.
