On 2nd May 2014 the GFAA President attended a briefing by the Expert Panel that is looking into a "Declared Fishing Activity" (Super Trawlers in the Small Pelagic Fishery).  As a key recreational fishing stakeholder GFAA participated and described our concerns. 

The panel has to complete their report by October, 2014 and they provided a Powerpoint presentation of their progress to date.
