Co Op Chairman is satisified with allocation of ground to Fishermen

The Chairman of Castlemaine Co Op Sean O Sullivan says he’s satisfied that the process of allocating ground to fishermen in the area is legally sound. One fisherman is threatening a court challenge to the process which he says left 17 people without any fishing rights. But Mr O’ Sullivan says the criteria for dividing the harbour were agreed at a special meeting of the Co-Op members. He says the 17 who did not get any ground failed to prove they were genuinely interested.
