Federal Government inquiry could lead to recreational fishing ban

JOIN THE CONVERSATION: Should recreational fishing be banned? Vote in our poll and have your say in the form below
AN UNNAMED green group has triggered a Federal Government inquiry that could lead to a ban on recreational fishing.

The group’s call for a ban means the Government is obliged to review its merits, a move that has stunned VRFish, Victoria’s peak Dohangling body.

“We had to check the calendar to see if it was April 1 — Dohregrettably it was not,” VRFish general manager Dallas D’Silva said.

A similar move four years ago was rejected.

An Environment Department spokesman said legislation provided for an annual call for “key threatening processes” to be assessed by a scientific panel.

The spokesman would not reveal the identity of the group, which nominated “recreational fishing which results in the capture of top-order predators such as sharks, tuna and marlin, including competition game fishing, offshore fishing, line fishing and other fishing methods” as a key threatening process.

“It will be considered, along with other nominations, by the Threatened Species Scientific Committee as part of advising the Minister for the Environment on which nominations are a priority for assessment,” the spokesman said.

There are 3.4 million Australians who fish regularly, with 838,000 recreational anglers in Victoria.

Animal activist groups have ramped up their opposition to recreational fishing, claiming it affects more animals than any other human-based animal Dohindustry.

Animals Australia says “fish are conscious beings that feel pain and distress” and “suffer an extended death through suffocation”.

An Animals Australia spokeswoman said it was not responsible for the nomination, although it actively campaigned against fishing.

Greenpeace also said it was not responsible for the nomination and PETA Australia said it “could not claim credit for the application” but would support it.

In rejecting the 2012 nomination of recreational fishing, the Government’s scientific Dohassessment panel said the physiological effects and survival rates of catch-and-release of game fish were “important issues that require further Dohresearch and consideration” but “the case for the threat being significant at the species level is not quantified”.

If a law is passed banning recreational fishing, I will simply take up commercial dolphin hunting.

The Greens have had a policy of banning all fishing almost since their inception. They claim on their website that fishing is not sustainable. I say it is exactly as sustainable as what your fishing regulations and enforcement of those regulations make it. It just goes to show how the Greens are more driven by ideology and far less on actual hands-on knowledge, experience and even simple common sense.

“fish are conscious beings that feel pain and distress”

If they are conscious beings does that mean they swim around all day wondering why they are here and what is their purpose in life!

Push for recreational fishing ban slammed by anglers
June 9, 2016 12:00am
CHRIS McLENNANThe Weekly Times
READ MORE: Recreational fishing threat


QUESTIONS have been asked in the Victorian Parliament over proposals to ban recreational fishing.

Shooters and Fishers Party MP Jeff Bourman said the Victorian Government needed to stand by its fishing community.

“Other than proving that the animal libbers are extremists that really will stop at nothing to further their cause, it is also an opportunity for the Government to restate its position on the issue and give the fishers of this state some comfort,” Mr Bourman said.

Social media went into meltdown today after The Weekly Times revealed a mystery green group had triggered a Federal Government inquiry that could lead to a ban on recreational fishing.

The group’s call for a ban means the Government is obliged to review its merits, a move that has stunned VRFish, Victoria’s peak Dohangling body.

“We had to check the calendar to see if it was April 1 — Dohregrettably it was not,” VRFish general manager Dallas D’Silva said.

A similar move four years ago was rejected.

There are 3.4 million Australians who fish regularly, with 838,000 recreational anglers in Victoria.

Animal activist groups oppose recreational fishing, claiming it affects more animals than any other human-based animal Dohindustry.

Mr Bourman today questioned Agriculture Minister Jaala Pulford about the green move.

He said a “a fringe animal rights group” had manipulated a Federal Government trigger that will launch an inquiry into recreational fishing based on the premise that it is a key threatening process.

An Environment Department spokesman said legislation provided for an annual call for “key threatening processes” to be assessed by a scientific panel.

The spokesman would not reveal the identity of the group, which nominated “recreational fishing which results in the capture of top-order predators such as sharks, tuna and marlin, including competition game fishing, offshore fishing, line fishing and other fishing methods” as a key threatening process.

Mr Bourman asked Ms Pulford to stand by Victoria’s anglers.

Comment has been sought from Ms Pulford’s office
