Habitat mapping is like a permanent record of what you’ve seen on your sounder! Where are all those complex snags and rock bars the fish love so much? And importantly, where are they lacking and in need of restoration?
Fisher Science Tackle Bag of Tools provides knowledge and resources to recreational fishers about fish habitat needs, enables fishers to participate in citizen science research. These projects build the capacity of recreational anglers to undertake and better prioritise actions in their own backyard.
These resources build the capacity of recreational anglers to map, monitor, learn and educate about their local fish and waterways. We aim to give everyday fishers the tools and knowledge to discover more about their local fishing ecosystem and share their knowledge with their community, to grow interest and respect in the sport they love for generations to come.
