Conservation groups are ramping up their campaign against legislation that could change the no-fish zones in South Australia’s marine parks to allow fishing.
The groups position is at odds with regional fishing communities and some commercial fishers who remain strongly in favour of the bill.
The Conservation Council of South Australia held a community meeting in Independent MP Martin-Hamilton Smith’s electorate of Waite at the Belair Park Country Club on Wednesday.
About 50 people attended the gathering to hear from shark expert and marine conservationist Valerie Taylor AM.
On Thursday Ms Taylor, 78, also staged a “one-woman” protest on the steps of Parliament to send a message to politicians.
