Recreational Fishing Forums 2013
For the fifth year running Fisheries Victoria in partnership with VRFish will be holding 11 recreational fishing regional forums across the state in June and July of this year.
Popular fishing personalities will be coming along too. Rex Hunt will be sharing his knowledge at the Greensborough forum. Merv Hughes, author of Caught in the Deep, will be on pace at the Nagambie, Bendigo, Inverloch and Lakes Entrance forums.
The forums have proved to be a great success over the years, with a significant number of fishers from different demographics in attendance.
These forums provide fishers with the opportunity to have their say about growing recreational fishing in Victoria and learn more about what Fisheries Victoria is doing to improve fishing opportunities.
There have been a number of great suggestions made by fishers in the past.
View the full list of suggestions made by fishers at the regional forums in 2012 and 2011.
Consulting widely with recreational fishers is a commitment in the State Government’s $16.2 million Recreational Fishing Initiative.
