“I know how dangerous Super Trawlers are to the environment and our fish stocks.
Super Trawlers are responsible for wiping out the baitfish in Africa and pose a significant danger to our environment and local fishing industry.
I am a pro-development, pro-business politician – but wiping out fisheries for short-term financial gain - makes no economic or environmental sense and must always be opposed.
The JLN will always oppose and vote against any Super Trawler fishing in Australian Waters.” Said Senator Lambie.
