Description

  • This division relates to the Policy _[For developing and enforcing fishing restrictions](/policies/41)_.
  • The majority voted against a [motion](http://www.openaustralia.org/senate/?id=2012-09-11.101.1) introduced by Greens Senator [Rachel Siewert](http://publicwhip-rails.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Rachel_Siewert&mpc=Senate&house=senate), which means that it was rejected. The motion was:
  • _That the Senate calls on the Government to ban all super trawlers from Australian waters._(Super trawlers include fishing boats such as the [FV Margiris](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FV_Margiris), later called the Abel Tasman. )
  • This motion was made in response to the arrival the super trawler named [FV Margiris](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FV_Margiris) into Australian waters. Opponents to the trawler argue that its presence "will cause localised overfishing and could drive away bluefin tuna".(Read more about the arguments against the super trawler [here](http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-08-15/super-trawler-debate/4200114). ) Supporters disagree, saying the trawler's quota is sustainable.(As above.) Due to these disparate views on the effect of super trawlers on fish populations, senators in favour of the policy "For developing and enforcing fishing restrictions" could have voted either way (i.e. either 'aye' or 'no'), depending on their views on this issue.
