Coral harvesting on the Great Barrier Reef continues at 100 tonnes a year

Letter to the Editor

If our reefs are so depleted of coral cover then why is Coral Harvesting in Australia still going at full speed in Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia?

It’s hard to believe but for decades now, government licensed divers jackhammer out for export to marine aquariums, over 100 tons a year of hard & soft corals, anemones & live rock.

Sometimes in full view of horrified tourists on scuba excursions! But that’s ok because JCU, GBRMPA & all the governments say it is for the 30 odd companies exporting great chunks of our beautiful reef for profit & not a peep from the greenies.

See where it ends up at:

These guys say it’s all ok:

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. Well, it’s sorta like, the scientific gurus make the excuses that they’re told to make or they will lose their life of luxury and leasure funding.

  2. There’s always some emergency on the reef; recall the Crown of Thorns Star Fish crisis. Then there were the bulk ore carriers ploughing up the reef. That reef sure is a survivor, eh! “Always look on the bright side of life…”

  3. The problem is, Irene, who does the protecting? The AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT (the American company) clearly doesn’t git a sh*t, they’re the ones making the money.
    Hanging is no good, it’s too quick.

  4. I thought that the Great Barrier Reef was World Heritage listed and therefore, protected.

  5. Typical governmental bullshit over and over again, why is this OK? Because the Government is getting paid. Just like Elbo and Wong’s multi million dollar pay outs for their selling of more of Australia. Its ok when they make some cash. they do not really care for anyone but them selves.
