Have your say on location of SA’s new reefs

4 December 2015

South Australians are invited to provide feedback on the preferred location for the state’s first trial reef project.

Two locations in northern Gulf St Vincent and a third location in southern metropolitan Adelaide have been shortlisted as possible sites.

The $600,000 trial reef project has been created to restore fisheries habitat. It will be created with artificial and natural materials on the seabed.

The project is part of the State Government’s $3.25 million support package to boost recreational fishing and tourism opportunities which complement marine parks.

The three locations have been short-listed due to their high value to recreational fishers as well as the long term benefits to regional communities and the marine environment.

If this trial proves successful, it may also support the implementation of further reef restoration projects in South Australia.

Two community meetings will be held in December to provide details on the proposed options. All members of the public are welcome.

 Ardrossan Town Hall. Tuesday, December 8, 7pm - 8.30pm.

 Port Noarlunga Surf Life Saving Club. December 9, 7pm - 8.30pm.

Feedback closes January 8, 2016.
