Protection of all Marine life in Clovelly Bay from Line and Spear Fishing sign now

We the Undersigned want the mandated protection of all marine life In Clovelly Bay and the Rock pool on the Northern side of the bay. from all forms of harmful Interference from Man specifically Line Fishing, Spear fishing and the collection or removal of Invertebrates, Mollusks or any other life present inside the bay
This is to ensure the protection of the Environment and marine life including Clovelly's famous Blue Grouper family as well too protect Swimmers and Snorkelers from the hazards of lines, hooks and pollution of the foreshores from spilled and leftover baits, packaging from fishing devices and conflict caused by having lines in the waters alongside swimmers.
This petition is for the area inside the reef of Clovelly bay and the Rock pool on the Northern side of the Bay..
Fishermen can still use outside this area as permitted .
Most fisherman are responsible and have a positive sense of Fair play though lately fishermen have been seen regularly fishing inside the baths where just a few years ago one of the endangered Blue Grouper was speared causing a massive public outcry..
The aim of this petition is to get the Randwick City Council, NSW Department of Primary Resources and any other relevant Goverment body to recognize the unique importance of this area and protect it with the required legislation. Please help.

Clovelly Bay Excerpt taken from Sydneynature.com

Clovelly Bay may be Sydney's most popular snorkelling location. It is a sheltered bay which consistently has decent snorkelling. Sharks are rarely found here: you are very lucky if you see one!

The star of Clovelly Bay is Bluey, the friendly male blue groper. Actually, the original Bluey was illegally killed by a spear fisherman in 2002, so the current male blue groper can be called Bluey the Second. Other than Bluey, there are a lot of common fish: trevally, stripeys, wrasses, toadfish, scalyfin, white ear, etc.... On occasion, one can also find garfish, old wives, pygmy leatherjackets, octopuses, and nudibranchs. If you're lucky, you might see an eel or lobsters hiding in the rocks
