Hi peoples Well it has happened! Just as Vic fisheries (Travis Dowling from memory) stated at a fishing forum in Shepparton last year, Fisheries Victoria will now become a new statutory authority! From memory (and only memory so don't quote me on this) on the night in Shepp it was stated that becoming a statutory authority that fisheries will have control over money! In particular...our money that is paid in license fees. So the government can not siphon the money off to other areas. Anyway, as I said, I could be wrong. cheers Team Bender Thinking of becoming a statutory authority myself!
