Recreational Fishing Forums 2013
For the fifth year running, Fisheries Victoria in partnership with VRFish held 11 recreational fishing regional forums across the state.
Popular fishing personalities Rex Hunt and Merv Hughes, author of Caught in the Deep, attended some of the sessions to pass on their experiences.
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.
Consulting widely with recreational fishers is a commitment in the State Government’s $16.2 million Recreational Fishing Initiative.
