The announcement on Wednesday is the sixth Blue Mud Bay fishing access agreement now endorsed by the Federal Government after a 2008 High Court decision which affirmed the Aboriginal traditional owners along most of the NT coastline have exclusive commercial and recreational fishing rights in the tidal waters along their land. Agreements have also been reached for the Upper Daly River, Daly River mouth to Cape Ford, McArthur River and the Sir Edward Pellew island group, Minimini and Murgenella, Nhulunbuy, and Wadeye. The Government has allocated $2.7 million from this years Budget for the deals. There will be greater opportunities for traditional owners to be involved in managing and benefiting from fish ing activity ... right across the sea country, Fisheries Minister Willem Westra van Holthe told the NT Parliament on Wednesday. A permit system was introduced after the 2008 ruling, but the new 20-year Tiwi deal will allow permit-free access to key fishing areas off Bathurst and Melville Island, as well as the Vernon Islands, for recreational, commercial and fishing tour operators. It includes $135,000 per year to support the Marine Ranger Program, a commitment to increase their powers, $30,000 to build a new recreational fishing camp, an enhanced Aboriginal coastal licence for community members, and a code of conduct to ensure visitors respect traditional owners rights. Traditional owners will be able to wet a line without the need for a permit Therell be greater opportunities 85cm Dish RRP $599 NOW $199 Dish + Bag + Stand + Meter + Compass + Cables No subscription fees Fast setup
