Fishers invited to Berowra Fish Habitat Forum

Fishers invited to Berowra Fish Habitat Forum
19 Jul 2012 - NSW Fisheries


Recreational fishers are invited to come along to a Fishers for Fish Habitat Forum to be held at Berowra to share their fish habitat stories.

In 2012 Fishers for Fish Habitat is going local with a series of small events planned in eight towns from Merimbula to Yamba, including Berowra on Saturday 28 July 2012.

Department of Primary Industries (DPI) senior conservation manager, Kylie Russell, said the events, which are being held at various locations around the State, aim to raise awareness of issues affecting fish habitat and the State’s fisheries resources.

"This year there will be a strong focus on what fishers are doing to improve local fish habitat," she said.

"In particular, we want to recognise fishers’ concerns about their local fish habitat and inspire others to get involved."

President of the NSW Recreational Fishing Alliance, Malcolm Poole, said the forums are an opportunity for anglers to speak directly with Fisheries and Catchment Management Authority (CMA) representatives.

"What’s exciting about these events is the opportunity for like-minded fishers to get together to discuss habitat issues and identify ways to help make more fish, naturally," Mr Poole said.

The Fishers for Fish Habitat program is supported by funds from the NSW Recreational Fishing Trust, raised from the NSW Recreational Fishing Fee, and managed by DPI.

Additional funding is being provided this year by the five NSW coastal CMAs and the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country program.

Fishers for Fish Habitat Forums will be held in Queanbeyan (26 July), Berowra (28 July), Port Macquarie (4 August) and Yamba (5 August).

Full details are available at www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fisheries/info/forum2012.
