If you fish in the Daly River, then the Amateur Fishing Association of the Northern Territory wants to hear from you (image: Peter Zeroni).

THE Aboriginal Land Commissioner is currently reviewing 12 bed and bank / intertidal Land Claims previously recommended for grant. One of these is the Lower Daly River Land Claim (No.68).

 
The claim relates to the bed and banks of the lower Daly River (from approximately Clear creek area down to the river mouth). 
 
This claim was previously recommended for grant, and if granted in the future, could mean changes to access arrangements (possibly fishing permits and/or area restrictions).
 
If you fish in this area, then the Amateur Fishing Association of the Northern Territory wants to hear from you now!

First-hand information from recreational fishers will be essential to AFANT being able to substantiate detriment issues for the statement they are preparing to lodge with the Commissioner.

 
If you care about fishing in the Lower Daly, you should take a few minutes to complete the survey.
 
AFANT is also happy to accept more detailed submissions from fishers, clubs and associations. Please send these to research@afant.com.au with the subject: Lower Daly Land Claim. All submissions must be received by Monday March 5.
