Summer is a wonderful time to cast a line and relax with friends and family, however it is important for fishers to be aware of safety requirements and the rules in place to protect the sustainability of our marine fisheries.
While rod and line fishing licences aren’t required for our marine waters, licences are required for some saltwater species caught by other means such as lobster pots and graball nets.
Rene Hidding, Liberal Member for Lyons
Rebecca White’s ongoing refusal to condemn the Labor Party and Unions for their pokies ownership is a hypocritical double standard.
Ms White directed a campaign of vitriol against Tasmanian businesses with gaming machines. Where is the same public lashing of Bill Shorten and the Labor Party?
In the world according to Ms White, Tasmanian pubs and clubs are villains for having pokies, but it’s fine for the Labor Party and Unions to own pokies and contribute the profits to her Party.
Michael Ferguson, Minister for Police, Fire and Emergency Management
It is vital Tasmanians remain vigilant, be aware of local weather and fire conditions and follow advice from the Tasmania Fire Service.
Conditions in the North-East today are forecast to be hot and when high fire danger occurs, it is important people know what to do if a fire threatens their home or property.
Elise Archer, Acting Treasurer
