Echo Net Daily: Seabird Rescue urges end to marine-park fishing

Australian Seabird Rescue (ASR) has hit back at claims that recreational fishing in marine parks has ‘little impact’ on marine life, calling it an ‘insult’ to its founder.
The group responded angrily to the claims made by Ecofishers’ spokesperson Ken Thurlow on ABC radio earlier this week and called on the state government to ensure that marine parks are protected from shoreline fishing.
‘It is an insult to the lifelong work of Seabird Rescue founder, The Pelican Man, Lance Ferris, to suggest that recreational fishing has little impact,’ said ASR spokesperson Keith Williams.
