Who is VRFish?
VRFish, the Victorian recreational fishing peak body, is the representative organisation for recreational fishers in Victoria. We are committed to representing and advocating the interests of the 721,000 fishers located throughout Victoria. We consult broadly with the recreational fishing community to represent their views in an accurate and timely manner to Government and their agencies, as well as communicate effectively with the recreational fishers of Victoria.
VRFish is a registered company. Our organisational structure comprises a Board of Directors, five staff, and a State Council comprising over 50 affiliated member delegates and 20 unaffiliated member delegates), governed in accordance with the VRFish Constitution. The Constitution outlines key governance issues for VRFish, including membership, meeting proceedings, Board elections and appointment of staff.
Our membership comprises three categories: affiliated members of a club or association representing at least 500 members or 10 fishing clubs; unaffiliated members; and Kindred Interest Groups.
VRFish also has a number of committees that explore issues such as finances, research and development, water and habitat issues and fishing infrastructure and access. We draw on external expertise to assist VRFish members on these committees.
