Campaigning fisher Bart ButsonProfessional and recreational fishers have launched a last ditch public campaign against Marine Parks ‘No Take’ zones that they believe will cause personal damage to fishers and communities around SA.

The campaign kicked off today with a full page advertisement in The Advertiser, by individual fishers and fishing associations.

Campaign organiser, fisherman, Bart Butson, a third generation professional at Port Wakefield, said: “This is personal, it's about generations of fishing families who will be damaged by the far reaching changes to fisheries around the state.

 “No one is seriously against marine parks, but we need bureaucrats and government to listen to real local knowledge in how the zones are drawn up around our communities and towns.
