Attached is a copy of the Borthwick Report and associated federal govt response for your information, released today. The Borthwick Review was an outcome of the Super Trawler issue. We were interviewed by the author David Borthwick and put in a TARFish submission, whilst also writing the national peak body submission. My initial reading is that all the major issues we raised have been picked up by the report and the govt response supports our views.
I am currently working with the national peak body (ARFF) to ensure a common national response is delivered to the federal govt. We will continue our involvement with these processes as they are fundamental to improving the position of recreational fishing recognition. I provide the attached for your information but there is no action required from you at this stage.
Feel free to distribute as you see fit.
