Gladstone harbour used in reef campaign

A RECENTLY launched television campaign under the Fight for the Reef banner is using Gladstone harbour as an example of what can go wrong when dredging and dumping spoil material.

The advertisement features fishermen from Gladstone who claim their livelihoods and businesses have been drastically affected by the impact of industry on the city's harbour.

Fight for the Reef says it hopes the advertisement will raise the awareness of the public in the quest to fight against similar industrial expansions that are planned for Abbot Point, near Mackay.
