Fisheries investigate Saratoga wetlands vandalism

Central Coast Fisheries Officers are investigating an act of vandalism on marine vegetation in the Saratoga wetlands and are appealing to the public for information.

Fisheries was made aware of harm done to various types of marine vegetation within the wetlands adjacent to Irwan Rd, Saratoga, with officers inspecting the area on August 18.

They identified a number of protected mangrove trees which had been impacted.

Various other vegetation had also been impacted by the act of environmental vandalism, including casuarina trees, saltmash and other vegetation.

Marine Vegetation is protected in NSW and plays a very important role in the ecosystem and Fisheries Officers are asking for anyone with information to come forward and report it via the Fishers watch number on 1800 0435 36.
