Recreational Fishing in the Federal Election

i Jun 30th No Comments by

The Federal Election this month will have some significant outcomes for recreational fishing depending on which party can form government and the makeup of the Senate. This includes issues such as the Super Trawler, Commonwealth Marine Reserves, recognition of recreational fishing as a stakeholder in Commonwealth Fisheries, the funding of a national representative body for recreational fishing and a national recreational fishing survey.

The Australian Recreational Fishing Foundation has complied a breakdown of the recreational fishing policies of the Labor, Liberal and Green parties.
