Time's up. Divers say fishing trial is damaging marine park reputations

SCUBA dive operators are seeing the anecdotal damage caused by a decision to lift a ban on fishing in some marine sanctuaries.
In March 2013 the NSW government lifted the fishing ban on some sanctuary zones on ocean-facing beaches and headlands.
It was supposed to be a one-year trial.
Almost four months after the deadline expired environmental groups, divers and anglers remain in limbo with no decision from the government on when or if the trial will end.
