Stop the ban on Commercial Net Fishing in Mackay

There is a plan to ban commercial net fishing and open recreational fishing-only areas in the Mackay region. 

A ban on commercial net fishing would mean:

- No fresh local fish

- More imported fish

- Less choice for consumers

- A major impact on companies such as Debbie’s Seafood their staff, and local industries.

We encourage you to sign this petition because as suppliers of fresh local seafood and as consumers, we want to buy fresh local Mackay seafood, not imported seafood.
