Your View: Recreational fishing

REGARDING State’s recreational fishers rejoice about Liberal victory (YPCT 27-3-18) I and the majority of recreational fishers are flabbergasted with the comments made by Les Rochester.

His statements paint an ill-informed, one-sided view. Mr Rochester is entitled to his views but to infer he represents all recreational fishers is totally inaccurate.

And yes, recreational bag limits were reduced along with compromises in the professional sector to address major stock declines. Is a 40 bag limit per person for King George whiting still manageable or even achievable compared with the 10 we have now?

As I have been a RecFishSA member and am privy to the background workings of its members there are facts to support the scuttle bug Mr Rochester alluded to. The best way of knowing the facts is to be a member of RecFishSA or at least sit down together to discuss what we all want — a sustainable recreational fishing sector in South Australia.
