Professional Fisherman say thousands of jobs and millions of dollars would be lost within South Australia’s seafood industry, if the proposed marine parks no-take sanctuary zones go ahead. They claim South Australia’s multi-million dollar industry would be killed off if the planned ‘no-take zones’ remain as they are. Under current proposals, fishing would be locked out of ten per cent of state waters in a bid to preserve marine biodiversity. Of equal concern to the industry is the delay in a compensation package for fishermen who will find themselves out of a job. Jess Wingard asked the Minister, Paul Caica if he believed the estimated loss of 800 jobs in the industry was accurate.
