Re: VFA Media Alert: HANDS OFF VICTORIAN TUNA

It is two now x ??? trips in a year. So for some it could mean they go 20 times a year and keep 40 fish. Others may go twice and keep 4 fish. If it is cut back to 1 but everyone goes twice as often and then a few extra people take up Tuna fishing then the total number increases. This is a big probl...

Re: VFA Media Alert: HANDS OFF VICTORIAN TUNA

What I find strange is recent information on stock levels indicate that SBT numbers are increasing and bag limits could sustainably be increased.
