Quotes

"As far as commercial fishing goes, it's having a diabolical financial impact; seals are a bit like foxes, they kill all the chickens and they can only eat one" he said
"It's through environmental watering that we can restore the health of the Basin so it's running well from top to bottom and best placed to survive drought"
"We are not convinced the MDBA is being run as efficiently as it can, on the basis that there's no transparency around what those costs are and how they're being levied."
