(1) A person may carry out bait netting in the marine park using only—
(a) for a recreational fisher under the Fisheries Regulation—a cast, scoop or seine net complying with chapter 4, part 1, division 4 of that regulation; or
(b) for a commercial fisher—a cast net or mesh net complying with the Fisheries Regulation, chapter 9, part 5
(2) A commercial fisher who is bait netting in the conservation park zone (other than an area within the Great Sandy area) must not—
(a) take a relevant fish while bait netting; or
(b) possess a relevant fish taken in contravention of paragraph (a).
(3) For subsection (2)(a), a commercial fisher does not take a relevant fish while bait netting if—
(a) the fish is taken unintentionally; and
(b) the fisher does not allow the net containing the fish to be out of the water other than to immediately remove the fish from the net; and
(c) the fisher immediately releases the fish into water deep enough to allow the fish to escape.

relevant fish means a fish of any of the following species—
(a) bream of the genus Acanthopagrus or Rhabdosargus;

I just have to continually ask " How did marine parks allow commercial netting to be carried out/allowed in ALL the Great Sandy Marine park YELLOW conservation zones in the 1st place when legislating it ? "
Making it the ONLY one on the PLANET to my knowledge
And how do we fix it now ......
