Australians have rejected Labor’s plans to return to their disastrous marine park lock outs policy.

Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources Richard Colbeck said the strong result for the Liberal National Government in areas affected, particularly in Queensland, has given a strong mandate for the Liberal National fisheries plan.

Our Government was first elected promising to wind back Labor’s disastrous 2012 marine park lock outs policy and we delivered on that commitment.

Once again commercial, charter and recreational fishers have united in support of our plan, which has allowed Australian fishing families to continue to access waters they have fished for generations.

Tony Burke and Labor’s plan to drag Australia back to their job-destroying marine park lock outs “in full” has been completely rejected by the public three times now.

Labor and the Greens’ proposed lock outs would have been particularly damaging to the industry in Queensland.

Across Australia, and particularly in Queensland, fishing communities have mounted a grassroots resistance to Labor’s disastrous marine park lock outs policy.

At this election there was a clear choice: between the Liberal National Government committed to securing the future of commercial and recreational fishing in Australia, or a Labor-Green alliance committed to job-destroying marine park lock outs.
