Dear sir\madam my points are that I'm very worried of the extension and were it will go. It will affect all but I have 98% of my earnings come from around the farm. Mainly to the east and the south. Static and drift fishing. This will see me out of business on the drifting grounds. My nets are a one off for a certain area and are to heavy to work else where.Nylon and number 6 lead line. Working east of the farm for about 18 years now so also it's not that I know new grounds. This would need new gear. New gear on new grounds isn't the scenario i would like to try and breaking in ground ends in a lot of damage/lost gear. All I can say that this will cause massive disruption to me. The scuccor fish will show where I work. Sadly not enough to the south of the farm but that could change now our quotas seem to catching up with the amount of fish about. I hope this is the sort of thing you were after. Kind regards Mr Graham Pulman
