Seasonal Pipi Collection Restrictions for Venus Bay Beaches

Reason for signing

  • https://vfa.vic.gov.au/recreational-fishing/pipis-now-and-forever : Pipi collectors showed a high degree of compliance with the catch limits. Recreational collection of pipis had no measurable effect on numbers of pipis on the beach. I fully understand the frustration of local people affected by tourists, but that is equally so in every tourist destination, so why single out pipi collectors? Kerrie and others, why is your way of enjoying the beach more important than that of pipi collectors?
