i Mar 31st No Comments by

The Amateur Fishermen’s Association of the Northern Territory has made a submission for the review of the Commonwealth Marine Reserves as it applies to the North Commonwealth Marine Reserves Network.

AFANT welcomes the opportunity to provide comment on the review of the North Bioregion Commonwealth Marine Reserve. AFANT recognises that this review delivers on the government’s election commitment for a ‘More Competitive and Sustainable Fisheries Sector’ and hopes that this review will reflect genuine consultation with stakeholders reinforced by peer reviewed science.

AFANT recognises that a marine park is a resource to be enjoyed by all Australians and we support marine reserves that allow multiple uses in a sustainable fashion such as; recreation, science, education, conservation and enhanced visitor experiences.
