Adopt-a-Beach: 12 months on

Launched in March 2012, the Adopt a Beach program was created to address concerns from the Eyre Peninsula community about aquaculture-related marine debris.

Fisheries Minister Gail Gago said the program had delivered significant benefits to the coastal environment.

“All sorts of things have been collected, from land-based debris such as tyres, clothing, refrigerators and food packaging, to materials related to aquaculture and commercial and recreational fishing activities such as rope and plastic.

“It’s great to see industry playing an important role in the protection of our aquatic and coastal environment, which underpins the Government’s strategic priority of Premium Food and Wine from our Clean Environment.
