Interview with Sonny Kaeo Landon-Lane

Today’s urgent interview is with Sonny Kaeo Landon-Lane highlighting a potential game changing fisheries ban for spearos in Tasmania! The Sand Flathead, Striped Trumpeter, Bastard Trumpeter and the Banded Morwong are all at risk of being completely banned for spearos – are spearos the reason for their decline? How can I get involved and stop this ban from happening? All this and some juicy details about Tasmania spearfishing and dive conditions!
