Ron Schaefer started this petition to Recfishwest

This week Recfishwest met with the Minister for Fisheries to discuss the future management of salmon.

Unfortunately, we are still seeing salmon targeted as a low value bait product. This is clearly not the best use of salmon.

We followed up this meeting with a letter seeking his immediate intervention so that salmon are managed in line with broader community expectations.

The start of the salmon season has only just arrived and we’d like to see some immediate changes before the peak activity over Easter.

A best use solution requires both short and long-term measures.

- Immediate removal of commercial salmon netting from beaches on weekends, public holidays and school holidays.
- Improvement to the way fish are treated and utilised.
- Comprehensive reform of salmon management in WA, including the development of clear objectives that reflect the views of the broader community.
