Fishing Industry Responds to Reform with 'Trepidation'


The Marine Fishers Association (MFA), has responded with trepidation to the State Government's $24.5 million reform package for the commercial fishing industry.

While the package has ended more than two decades of uncertainty, it is likely to adversely impact the industry and jobs as well as consumers.

Dr. Gary Morgan, Acting Executive Officer of the MFA, joins Jennie Lenman to discuss.
