South Australia's Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources Compliance Unit Manager, Adrian Robb says, “It’s important that boats keep away from wrecks like the Zanoni, as they are very delicate and can easily be damaged by anchors, ropes, chains and fishing lines. Six people were fined in November after being caught fishing on the Zanoni, and another 11 similar cases are pending.” He says that water and aerial patrols were being conducted in the area to ensure that fishers and boaters were respecting the rules. “The maximum fine for being found in a historic shipwreck protected zone without a permit is $1250,” he said. Anyone caught fishing in a marine park sanctuary zone faces a $315 expiation, but serious and repeat offenders can be fined up to $100,000.
