Zoning Plan for Great Sandy Marine Park
Written by Meade Murphy
Created / Updated on Wednesday 28th of September 2022
This week the Queensland Government has released a draft zoning plan for the Great Sandy Marine Park. The good news is that the Red Cross Hatching has been removed from the yellow conservation zone making it in line with every yellow zone in the world. The green zones have been increased from 4% to 12.5% which will help to increase fish stock that went from 7.8 fish per person per trip in 1986 to 0.81 fish per person per trip.

Save Hays Inlet and the Dugongs
Written by Meade Murphy
Created / Updated on Tuesday 22nd of February 2022
Recently, a pair of dugong was spotted by a local resident, grazing on the newly regenerated seagrass in Hays Inlet. This is a testament to our parent body QAFCA and our political representative Sunfish, who in 2008 negotiated the green and yellow zones in this area. The health of the inlet has come back after it was turned into a desert by constant commercial net fishing. It got so bad that the local RCAA fishing club had to abandon it as a designated trip venue.

In 1993, Hays Inl .....
