APRIL 2022 | OzFish to lead Lake Macquarie fish habitat restoraton
OzFish Unlimited, Australia’s leading fishing conservation charity, has announced Lake Macquarie as the home of its newest chapter protecting and revitalising recreational fishing in the region. OzFish is a growing national not-for-profit that protects and restores fish habitats. Dan Guilfoyle, local angler and Lake Macquarie Chapter executive, says that the Lake has needed a group like OzFish for some time. “The last 20 years has seen a boom in how many people are fishing the Lake, which is great, but this pressure hasn’t been accompanied by a level of awareness that is needed to make sure we protect, restore and revitalise it as well,” Mr Guilfoyle said.
