I think you should get a list of the Department of Fisheries' priorities and see how many times the word “habitat” appears in them. I haven't seen it in 20 years. I'll bet nothing has changed. There's very little in it, if anything, that has to do with fish habitat.
I know when they hand out the funding, if you're not at the top of the list...as for the situation at the central region, I believe there were 160 pink slips handed out in your region, Bob, a region that's had successive cuts under both parties in government for the past 25 years.
