Elsewhere in News, Dr Ben Diggles has debunked some of the claims made by Pew’s Imogen Zethoven regarding the American-based conservation group’s stance on the Coral Sea – see story here.
In the above news piece Diggles outlines his work with the Queensland Game Fishing Association, which has resulted in the QGFA releasing its official position statement on the Coral Sea issue.
QGFA’s conservation officer, Evan Jones has sent Fisho the association’s statement and another document outlining the QGFA’s general policy on MPA’s for our readers to view. See links below.
Jones expressed to Fisho that the QGFA’s Coral sea position paper is still a working document, and designed to present the best current science based knowledge currently available on the region.
