Victory! Super Trawler Banned

People power wins

Yesterday it was announced that new laws have been set to ban the Super Trawler fishing in Australian waters for 2 years while an investigation into its real environmental impacts takes place after concerns that their science was out-dated. “If we get this wrong, there’s risks to environment and fishers which I’m not prepared to take.” – Minister for the Environment, Tony Burke.

This is a huge win and it’s all thanks to you! Yet another example of how people power can make a difference in the world.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
