Welcome news, but only the beginning!

This announcement came as welcome news, but has done nothing to protect the cuttlefish from fishing pressure elsewhere in the Upper Spencer Gulf (beyond the known breeding grounds) and arguably more importantly, impacts of proposed industrial developments on their doorstep at Port Bonython. You can find out more about this on our website... we have a petition open and campaign materials for you there if you'd like to show your support!
