The LNP's Shadow Fisheries Minister Tony Perrett has called for consumers to keep buying Queensland seafood and ignore the latest attack on fishing by militant green activists.
Mr Perrett said Queensland's stocks of prawns, scallop and Moreton Bay bugs were being carefully and sustainably managed by the local industry.
"Anyone who understands Queensland's seafood industry knows it is committed to the long-term viability of fishing stocks," Mr Perrett said.
"No-one cares more about the future of fishing than the men and women who work in the industry. Their livelihoods depend on maintaining those valuable stocks.
"The last LNP government worked with fishers and scientists to deliver a sustainable fishing plan.
"Green activists are not interested in the truth – their only goal is to shut down all fishing.
"I urge seafood-lovers to ignore this scare campaign and keep enjoying our glorious seafood."
Queensland Seafood Industry Association (QSIA) Chief Executive Officer Eric Perez said some green groups were hell-bent on destroying an industry that employs more than 3000 Queenslanders and contributes $294 million directly to the state's economy.
"Extreme green campaigners are putting in jeopardy many small family businesses, but they don't seem to want to base their decision on science," Mr Perez said.
"Our entire industry is based around sustainable ecological and scientific principles designed to protect the environment as our fishers rely on abundant fish stocks to protect their livelihood.
"According to nationally assessed and agreed figures*, Queensland's prawn and bug stocks are sustainable.
"I encourage consumers to choose Queensland wild product because doing so supports local small business activity and their families."
