As a commercial fishery that operates inside a National Park and includes a RAMSAR wetland of international importance, the SFA understands that the fishers have an obligation in responsibly managing the resource on behalf of the community. This means not only maintaining the environmental integrity of the region but wherever possible to enhance it.

The commercial fishing industry acts on behalf of the fish consuming public, including children, those in poor health and the elderly. Recent industry surveys have shown that fish buyers and consumers are not only those who choose not to/unable to go fishing but also a large proportion of those who call themselves recreational fishers.
