Herald Sun: Fish need protection, NSW govt told

FISHING in marine sanctuaries will kill endangered species unless the NSW government corrects its “backwards” lifting of a previous ban, conservation groups say.

Under major changes to environment laws, the ban on recreational fishing in most of the state’s marine sanctuaries was lifted in March.
Fearful that the decision could be permanent, a coalition of environmental organisations released a report on Friday calling on authorities not to wind back protections.
