Recreational and conservation groups regularly use the ‘health’ of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) as the context in which to gaslight and vilify commercial fishers in Queensland.  The release on Friday 4 September 2020 of a story by the Guardian Australia presents hard working Queensland commercial fishers in the worst way possible.

The story, titled ‘Unsustainable fishing worsens threats to Great Barrier Reef’ written by Graham Readfearn an environmental reporter for Guardian Australia.

The story demands a response.

In order to provide a perspective not typically heard, I spoke with commercial fishers across the GBR to seek their reactions.

A big thanks to George Christensen MP for his time yesterday.  The discussion focused on the coming Queensland election and of course the so-called fisheries reform.

More podcast content is on the way and with almost 7 months until the election more discussions on the issues facing commercial fishing and agriculture are needed.
