National Recreational Fishing Council

Agriculture, Water and the Environment
A representative body for recreational fishers. A commitment under the government's Policy for a More Competitive and Sustainable Fisheries Sector. The National Recreational Fishing Council will provide a mechanism for sharing information and provides a proactive conduit for the Commonwealth departments and agencies with responsibilities relating to fisheries management to engage directly with the diverse range of recreational fishing sector interests on national priorities and policies. The council will not develop policy for the sector, but rather provide the opportunity to present and discuss matters of importance to the sector.
