Soldiers Point Marina in Port Stephens, Australian Marina of the Year 2012, yesterday implemented 'Fish Friendly Marina' a brand new information campaign and accreditation system developed by the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) in collaboration with the Marina Industries Association (MIA) and the NSW Boating Industry Association (BIA).
The initiative forms part of the MIAs Clean Marinas Program of which Soldiers Point Marina has achieved the highest level possible – Level 4 (ISO 14001) – world standard for environmental management systems. In fact the Marina has recently regained accreditation for ISO 14001 as part of an annual process.
'We continue to place a high emphasis on our environment and take the new Fish Friendly Marina accreditation very seriously' said Darrell Barnett CMM, Marina Manager. 'We believe that we are at the forefront of Australian Marinas in environmental achievements' said Mr Barnett.
'We welcome our valued customers and the general public to our marina to learn about our many local native fish and their natural habitat.' he said.
