Fishers For Conservation Responsible Fishing Resources Page
We love the experience of interacting with our natural environment and the fascination of chasing the diverse range of fishing experiences our waters have to offer (not to mention the chance of taking home a feed for the family). The satisfaction of knowing you have done the right thing by the environment and future generations of fish and fishers should be part of the experience. Doing the right thing can only improve your enjoyment of recreational fishing.
Australian National Code of Practice for Recreational and Sport Fishing
Recreational fishing best practice is good for fishing, fish and the environment. The recently updated is an excellent guide to the right (and wrong) things to do when fishing. FFC along with many other groups and individuals had input into the updating of the Code publicly released on the 7th Jan 2009 coordinated by RecFish Australia. FFC distributes the Code with its Sustainable Fishing Education Packs and is able to provide printed copies to the fishing public - contact : email@example.com.
Sustainable Fishing Education Project
Fishers For Conservation provides fishing education written by fishers for fishers and delivered by fishers in person at boat ramps, jetties and beaches, via tackle shops, information centers and our web site.
The South Australian Sustainable Fishing Project has been operating since 2007 and information on the project is available on the project page. Print versions are available by contacting : firstname.lastname@example.org.
FFC will be extending the project to other regions of Australia and is currently developing partnerships and funding opportunities.
