Send your message to Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten now using the form below.

We want answers! – Will they protect our fishing future? – Tell them you will be voting on their answers.

Dear Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten

I Fish and I Vote

I am one of Australia's 5 million recreational fishers. I am concerned about the threat of supertrawlers and marine park lock outs to the future of Australia’s favourite pastime.

This election I want to know two things:

  1. Will you stop supertrawlers fishing our waterways?
  2. Will you stop marine park lock outs of recreational fishing?

I love my fishing and want my family and future generations to be able to enjoy this great Aussie pastime.

In fact I'll be voting on it.

Yours Sincerely

Past Campaigns
