QLD Country Life: Marine parks: overfishing concern if O'Farrell government overturns line-fishing ban

Marine conservationist Attila Kaszo fears for the survival of some fish species if the state government pushes ahead this week with a decision to lift a ban on recreational fishing in protected marine sanctuaries.
Mr Kaszo, who was part of a campaign that won Jervis Bay sanctuary status more than 15 years ago, said marine sanctuaries contained breeding grounds that, before being protected, were overfished.
