It was nearly two months ago that I held a press conference and called for the Federal Environment Minister to suspend dredging in Gladstone harbour until any link to the unfolding environmental crisis can be determined.
That's nearly two months of unspecified lesions in dead and dying fish. Two months of further dead turtles and dugongs, unknown disease in sharks, barramundi, prawns and other species. Two months of reports of boils and lesions suffered by fishermen themselves and local fishing businesses sent to the wall.
And the dredging still continues.
