Hey Guys, There is a super trawler, that will be coming to Australian waters to poach 18000 tonnes of bait fish a year from the start of next year, most of which will be headed for markets in Asia. It has already devastated fishing stocks all over the world and is finally headed for the pristine waters of Australia's East Coast. One of the world’s biggest fishing trawlers with a history of over exploiting fish stocks, the FV Margiris, wants to trawl for small pelagic fish – some of the most critical species in our marine ecosystem. Small pelagic fishing around Tasmania already has a bad record. The surface schools of jack mackerel that were once common off southeast Tasmania have not returned after the collapse of that fishery over 20 years ago. The fish are a vital food source for important species like the critically endangered southern bluefin tuna, marine mammals, seabirds and game fish. Trawlers like this not only catch the target species, they also get tonnes of bycatch - unwanted marine life like dolphins, seals and seabirds, that gets thrown back dead. This fishing trawler is the opposite of the fishing activities we need to ensure healthy oceans and healthy communities – we need better valued seafood that doesn’t rely on government subsidies, sustainable employment for local fishermen, science based fisheries management, and no unwanted by-catch. Not only will this trawler destroy local fishing economy but it will catch whales, dolphins and other animal that are vital to marine eco-systems survival. I personally will not watch this trawler go up and down past my home removing all the fish in the area and devastating the economy. The government doesn't seem to care. This is NOT just Australia's issue, this trawler has the capacity to wipe out fishing stocks ALL OVER THE WORLD!. Australia is just its next port of call. Please go to Stop the Super Trawler and sign the petition that will tabled to Australian government to ban the trawler coming to our waters. Get behind it Ryan.
