Stop the Super Trawler

This petition had 2,355 supporters


The super trawler boats can capture about 350 Tonnes of fish a day, this will cause mass localised deprivations in fish, killing off animals that live in the area, like dolphins and seals. Super trawlers will always have bycatch which is where animals which are not meant to be caught get trapped in the massive nets, often resulting in death for these unfortunate animals. Super Trawlers aren't fishing they are killing, and the fact the government thought that a law stating that 10 seals a caught a day in these nets is unacceptable. The people of Australia don't want the super trawlers in our waters, let the government know.
