Responsible fishing in Western Australia: write an article

TLF ID L4914

Go fishing in Western Australia. Look at how and why laws restrict people from taking certain fish. Identify cases where laws apply: size limits, bag limits and closed seasons. Build a magazine article explaining the fishing laws. Use a model structure and persuasive text to support a responsible position. For example, choose words such as 'precious' and 'vitally important' to make strong statements.
