Get Involved in the National Recreational Fishing Conference

The National recreational fishing peak body, Australian Recreational Fishing Foundation (ARFF), have announced that the 2019 National Recreational Fishing Conference will be held on the 10 & 11 December in Hobart.

This years conference will focus on how every fisher can help steer Australia’s recreational fishing future through taking part in citizen science projects. 

Our Fishing, Our Research, Our Recreational Future is the theme of this years conference, promising to celebrate, inform and expand Australia’s vibrant recreational fishing citizen science programs.  Every Australian fisher has the ability to take part in citizen science projects and influence the future of their favourite pastime, but many don’t understand how easy and fun it is or how important their contributions could be.

The National Recreational Fishing Conference aims to dissect the role of citizen science in recreational fishing, put it under the proverbial microscope and share the how’s, where’s and why’s so all Australians who love fishing can play their part in steering the sport into a strong and valued position in the future.

The National Recreational Fishing Conference is being supported with funding from the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC) on behalf of the Australian Government.
