"We are currently nearly 75% through a consultation period for the latest Marine Park proposal by the Government," saysd AFTA's Colin Tannahill.
"The latest proposal is much more recreational fisher friendly than any of the previous proposals over that last 8 years or so.
"We believe this may be the last proposal before the Marine Park system is finalised in the shorter term at least.
"The Australian Fishing Trade Association AFTA supports the latest proposal and thanks the Government for listening to our voices and ensuring access for recreational fishers to most fishing grounds.
"Therefore we are supporting the Keep Australia Fishing letter being sent to local MPs."
