Marine users can minimise impact
USERS of our ocean and estuaries interested in adopting best practice techniques to minimise impacts of use on the region’s marine environment are being encouraged to participate in a workshop in Coffs Harbour next month.
The session is open to all marine users, whether recreational or professional, and will provide information on existing best management practice programs, as well as how to develop new best practice systems.
The workshop will showcase examples of existing best practice programs in the recreational fishing, commercial fishing, aquaculture and tourism sectors and outline the different types of guidelines and environmental management systems available.
Workshop participants will learn how to adopt existing best practice programs and be introduced to the resources and potential funding assistance available to implement such programs or develop new systems for use in other areas.
Anyone with an interest in best management practice systems can attend the workshop which will be held at the Coffs Harbour Yacht Club from 9.30am until 12.30pm, Tuesday, May 4, 2010. For more information or to register your attendance, please call Anissa Lawrence on mob. 0419 903 800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
