Sail-World.com : Get onboard the 'Voice Your Choice' rally against marine park zones
Get onboard the 'Voice Your Choice' rally against marine park zones

'The something smells fishy site, billboard and rally will demonstrate Queensland’s opposition to the increased marine park zones.'    . ©    Click Here to view large photo

Kristina Georges of Samie’s Girl Seafoods at Hamilton Brisbane is urging the fishing and boating public to get together with the fishing industry and express opposition to the Gillard government's proposed Marine Park Reserves, organising phase two of the 'Voice Your Choice' campaign with a boat rally scheduled for August 19 in Brisbane.

The rally, which is planned as a family day complete with fish and chips and refreshments, will be held at the car park near the boat ramp, Sinbad Street, Cabbage Tree Creek, Shorncliffe and is open to industry, trade and all concerned of the public.

Supported by a billboard campaign which is running on prominent Sandgate Road at Virginia, and strong grass roots movement, Kristina hopes to rally the community and industry to present the argument that the fishing industry and general public has the right to access our oceans.

'Australia already imports 72 per cent of its seafood. We can’t allow the Gillard Government to lock us out of our waters and our valuable food source. Nowhere will the impact be felt more than in east coast Queensland waters where the government is proposing to lock Australians out of the Coral Sea. Queenslanders need to send a message to the government that we are against this move.
The proposed no-go zone is more than half the size of Queensland!'

She continues: 'Scientists have said that it’s not fishing that is putting the Coral Sea at risk and even Green groups acknowledge this. The proposed new network of marine parks has nothing to do with science but everything to do with appeasing green groups.

'The Australian fishing industry is one of the most highly regulated fishing industries in the world. Its practices are sustainable and well managed yet the Gillard Government wants us to buy fish from overseas where fishing regulations are not as robust as Australia’s.

Liberal Senator for Queensland, Sue Boyce is behind the rally, working with Kristina and Theressa Gambaro MP.
