South Australia’s clean marine waters are home to many different types of seafood. Many people love fishing but we need to carefully manage our marine environments to ensure the long-term health of our fish stocks, our fishing industry and Aboriginal traditional fisheries.
Controls are in place to limit the amount of seafood caught and when and how it is caught. Aquatic reserves have been established to protect important fish habitats.
Did you know? Decades of overfishing have reduced many species’ populations to the brink of extinction.
