It isn't exactly news to say that the waters in Port Pirie aren't the healthiest, but following a report last month into heavy metals beneath the water the Department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA) along with SA Health have decided to place a ban on fishing for some areas in Port Pirie. Jordan caught up with Gavin Begg, Acting Executive Director of Fisheries and Aquaculture with PIRSA about the decision.

Mayor of the Port Pirie Regional Council, Leon Stephens, first learned of the ban as it was announced, and says the fishing ban comes as a disappointment.
