The article discusses the so-called mismanagement of Australian fisheries. The writer asks for an inquiry to be conducted by the office of the Prime Minister into the Australian government's mismanagement of the country's fisheries and fishing industry. He wants an investigation on fishermen's license conditions, areas where fishing can be permitted, allowing the exploration and mining of natural resources while limiting the small fishermen's opportunities.
