NAL Call No. SH317 A8
The animal welfare debate has moved into the arena of fisheries. Malcolm Cleland, a farmer and consultant, suggests that fishermen should lay down plans now to protect themselves against criticisms that are likely to emerge within this decade. Fishermen have been urged to acquaint themselves with the animal welfare issues under debate and to initiate a code of practice for themselves, so they will be better placed to deflect criticism of fishing practices that industry considers acceptable. The advice has come from Malcolm Cleland, a Tasmanian sheep farmer, who has been active in the animal welfare debate for more than 10 years. Although not an animal liberationist himself, he maintains that the debate is here to stay. He says primary producers--including fishermen--cannot afford to ignore it.
