ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

OzFish Unlimited is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping the millions of Aussie recreational fishers take control of the health of their rivers, lakes and estuaries and shore up the future of the sport they love. OzFish Unlimited partners with fishers and the broader community to invest time and money into the protection and restoration of our waterways, counteracting decades of degradation.

What we do

  • Work with fishers to make local fishing grounds healthy, vibrant and more productive.

  • Share ideas on how to improve, restore and protect fish habitat.

  • Seek grants and support for hands–on habitat restoration.

  • Provide events, resources, education and research that support fishing groups to achieve local outcomes.
