Fake flake

More marine park impacts will reduce fish supply and jobs in rural towns – they do not address the actual risks facing the marine environment

The Southern Shark Industry Alliance Inc. (SSIA) has issued a press release explaining that they have successfully applied to the Australian Fish Names Committee to have the fish name “Flake” recognised so it can only be used for two species of Gummy Shark; the closely related Mustelus antarcticus from Australia and Mustelus lenticulatus from New Zealand.  This announcement is a precedent for the names used for other fish species.
