If YOU fish Between Baffle Creek & Tin Can Bay - We NEED YOUR SUPPORT !

The Great Sandy Marine Park is the ONLY Marine Park in the country that allows unrestricted numbers of commercial fishers to NET in what "should be " TRUE Yellow Conservation Zones and it is an "anomaly" that MUST BE CORRECTED in-line with the current Full Term - 10 Year review scheduled to be finalised THIS YEAR by December 2019 !

The "Designated Great Sandy Area" MUST BE REMOVED and incorporates areas of conservation park zones in :-

* Baffle Creek & tributaries
* The Elliott River & tributaries
* The Burrum River & tributaries
* The Mary River & tributaries
* The Great Sandy Strait and Tin Can Bay Inlet

This anomaly overturns EVERYTHING a TRUE Yellow Conservation Zones is there to protect - you could even ask is it lawful !

The more members and support we have on board the more influence we will have on the decision makers in realising the full potential of this region and provide adequate protection deserving of such a special marine environment !

The Fraser Coast Fishing Alliance Inc. is a non-for-profit association and  will NEED more funds to promote the FACTS and pay for advertising costs across social media and local news papers to ensure the wider community has the opportunity to engage and comment when  needed. The next phase of the review will be the release of the "Draft Re-Zoning" Plan due to be released for public consultation this year around July/August. 

ALL funds raised will go to the Fraser Coast Fishing Alliance Inc. and with your support we will "correct" our Great Sandy Marine Park and STOP Commercial NETTING in what should be True Yellow Conservation Zones !

Based on the fantastic support so far we have increased our target to $5000- as the more funds we can obtain the better the FCFA will be able to get the message out to the wider community when needed as the Great Sandy Marine Park Review progresses.

Thanks to every one who has already donated - please share this with all your friends and contacts.
