Drawing the Line: Marine Parks

This pelican wasn’t the only one rejoicing about this week’s unseasonal blue skies.

It’s the state’s most valuable fishery, and a key export industry. The Drawing the Line project has inspired local fishermen to add their voice to the growing chorus campaigning against marine parks. These blokes know their industry, and I was full of admiration for their respect for their ocean ‘office’.
