Manly Daily: Anti-fishing protest at Manly Beach attracts sharks, turtles

PEOPLE   power roared in Manly on Saturday as protesters in animal costumes voiced their opposition to fishing in NSW’s marine sanctuary zones.

About 30 people turned up to the protest, some dressed as sharks and turtles, calling on the NSW Government to maintain and enforce prohibitions on fishing.
Last year, the Government granted an amnesty on shore fishing bans in marine sanctuary zones.
The zones cover areas at Cape Byron, Solitary Islands, Port Stephens, Jervis Bay and Lord Howe Island.
