Overview

Recreational fishing is Australia’s most popular sport and leisure activity. The number of recreational fishers in Australia is significant and they have considerable political influence. Recreational fishers also have the potential to be instrumental in successful fisheries conservation, habitat restoration and environmental stewardship efforts.

We welcome research proposals which will contribute to understanding stakeholder engagement strategies for the collaborative management of fishing areas and the meaningful engagement of recreational fishers in a range of advocacy, conservation, monitoring, enforcement, and habitat restoration activities. This project will involve working with industry.
