Recreational Fishing

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (15:07): Supplementary: will the government listen to the voices of the recreational fishers, who are calling for a commitment to further investment into our jetties and boat ramps around our state?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:08): I thank the honourable member for her supplementary question. Of course, our government has made a number of commitments to assist fishing across the state. We will, as always, be very keen to hear from all sectors of the community, to particularly hear in this case from recreational fishers, which is where the re-establishment of RecFish SA as the peak industry body will play such an important part.
