Further to our BULLETIN on 16 April, please be advised members have voted in favour of modifying our work bans to allow patrol activity to recommence in Commonwealth Marine Parks.
The remainder of the bans are still in place, pending further information from Fisheries Compliance management.
They bans still in operation now read:
The PSA directs members not to engage in Rock Fishing Safety Enforcement duties.
The PSA directs members not to engage in any compliance and enforcement activity where the carriage and use of their baton and handcuffs has not been clearly established as lawful by fisheries compliance management. For example, duties associated with, but not limited to, extra-territorial patrols and NSW Biosecurity.
