FRA Fishing Rights Alliance!

Do we need such an organisation here?

http://www.thefra.org/

OK - we have Recfishwest - but IMHO at least, they occsionally appear to be just a bunch of apologists for Fisheries dept WA a lot of the time!!

When was the last time Recfishwest sued the Minister for Fisheres or Fisheries Dep't CEO for failing in their legislated duty to preserve fishstocks for fututre generations?

Isn't it about time we had an organisation with real balls LIKE FRA??

A political party like Fishing Party isn't going to waste $ on law suits - they probably want to spend it on getting elected for the parliamentary pension benefits!

Isn't it about time we had an organisation that goes in hard and takes no prisoners? What about one with a website to post photo's to shame the pro's & WAFIC on their deplorable record?

I say it's well past time IMHO!

Cheers!

After seeing this photo on the site it certainly makes me think a lot about our fishery.

Why longlining must stop.

I don't think recfish's voice gets carried very far as a result of the people in the right places protecting their vested interests....
Then again, what differences do you think having the FRA will make, is attacking the government the best option?

The current process doesn't seem to be achieving much, or am I wrong?
