Local Seafood Prices To RiseMay 2, 2016
As of 1st April 2016 prices for local commercially caught fish will increase as supply decreases. As previously feared the Andrews government has legislated to deny you the choice of local and sustainably caught fish. In a bid to win votes from the recreational sector the government will stop net fishing in Port Phillip Bay.
Our fishery was certified as sustainable by the Australian Government, Australian Conservation Foundation and was also supported by The Greens.
White Fisheries will continue to supply local bay fish from our own fishing boats for as long as allowed.
This Government is not concerned about the effect of this on our local community. Your local member is Lisa Neville
