Rec Net Free campaign launched

We have launched our campaign to phase out gillnets and bring the fish back to Tassie! If you'd like to do more to help, please tick the volunteer box on the petition page. You can also:

- Tell your friends by sharing our petition page on facebook, twitter and social media

- Write a letter to the MercuryAdvocate or Examiner calling for a Rec Net Free Tassie and immediate phase out of gillnets

- Write a letter to your local Member of Parliament supporting the call for a Rec Net Free Tassie and immediate phase out of gillnets (contact details here)

- Attend a public meeting by the Department in your nearest town and tell them you support no recreational gillnets (details below)
