Super Trawler question

Deputy Mayor with the Eurobodalla Shire, Anthony Mayne, is asking the community for their views on the super trawler Geelong Star in light of the media reports that vessel is a threat to coastal tourism, recreational fishers. The Canberra Times reports: "According to Australia Recreational Fishing Foundation managing director Allan Hansard, the trawler has chosen to catch its quota in places popular for recreational fishers, including off the coast of Bermagui, Narooma and Batemans Bay.Mr Hansard believes even just the sight of the boat close to shore in these popular areas is driving tourists away." Councillor Mayne, via the Community Voice Eurobodalla Facebook page offers" As a Councillor with the Eurobodalla Shire Council I would really like to hear your thoughts regarding the international super fishing trawler the Geelong Star. I have read and been advised of significant concern re the impact this trawler has on our local #Eurobodalla and #south coast fishing stocks, recreational fishing, local employment and the environment. "It's time to be heard." Thanks
