    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.

    Would hazard a guess they will make up the new 'independent' board! Jokes aside, it will be interesting to see who ends up on it. I am not sure why, and this is only my view, but sometime the most vocal people who are backed by others for positions like this...are idiots!
    Cheers

    What's wrong with what we have? Certainly some issues but I don't think they are doing to bad.

    Did it take long? I have the email sitting in my inbox. Don't want to start it during a coffee break if it takes 15 days to do!
    cheers

    My opinion counts!
