Over one-third of all fish caught using gillnets is thrown away - wasted. For Banded Morwong and some sharks, around 90% are discarded. Fishing favourites Bastard Trumpeter, Blue Warehou and Banded Morwong, have historically low populations and are vulnerable to gillnetting. 

On top of this, hundreds of protected penguins, seabirds, dolphins and skates have been killed by gillnets. 

 

We call on the Tasmanian Government to support a healthier, more abundant and productive coast by phasing out recreational gillnets in all Tasmanian waters by November 2016.
