SA Rock Lobster Industry ‘Draws the Line’

South Australia’s multi-million dollar rock lobster industry has been included in a soon-to-be-released documentary bringing a fishermen’s perspective to the political decision to implement the world’s largest network of marine reserves in Australian waters. 

South Australian Rock Lobster Advisory Council (SARLAC) Executive Officer, Justin Phillips, said the industry was pleased to be involved in the much-anticipated documentary, Drawing The Line, which features interviews with fishermen from some of the most remote locations along the State’s coastline.

Drawing The Line will tell an objective story about marine parks and demonstrates that it’s possible to deliver effective protection for the marine environment by dealing with real threats without unnecessarily excluding highly sustainable fisheries that support regional families and communities for political reasons,” Mr Phillips said.
