Save Jervis Bay website now live!

The Jervis Bay Marine Park is under review and now is the time to have your say on how the park is structured.

With the SaveSol campaign site having already generated over 1000 submissions in relation to the Solitary Islands Marine Park, it’s time to do the same for Jervis Bay.

If you like fishing and spearfishing, you need to let the Government know that you won’t accept unfair lock-outs of prime fishing areas. Anglers understand that we need to protect the environment but that protection doesn’t have to mean that we’re banned from fishing.

Anti-fishing groups and extremist greens are actively lobbying to stop you being able to enjoy the sport of fishing in Jervis Bay and other areas around NSW. Do you want this to happen?

Time to act!

The website has been established to make your voice heard on the proposed changes to the Jervis Bay Marine Park. On the site you will find a prepared submission prepared by local anglers and spearfishers who have an intricate knowledge of the effect these changes will have. It included input from, but not limited to:

  • Fishing World magazine
  • Spearfishing Downunder magazine
  • Jervis Bay Game Fishing Fishing Club/Shoalhaven Game Fishing Club
  • Basin Lure and Fly Fishing Club
  • Australian Land Based Anglers Association
  • The Australian National Sportfishing Association
  • The Recreational Fishing Alliance of NSW
  • The Australian Fishing Trade Association
