In relation to demersal scale fishing, when do all the proposed changes take effect, or do they have to be approved first?

Banning fishing for a period (2 months) will not save fish stocks. We need to set aside areas or reserves and ban fishing in these areas for at least 5 years to allow the fish in the reserve to grow, mature to breed. We need to preserve the breeding grounds at all times. Fishing should be banned all around Rottnest and garden Islands, 2-3 nautical miles from the island in all directions. There are many other areas to catch fish.
