National Fish Habitat Strategy: Recreational Fishers Managing Fish Habitat

Widespread loss of fish habitat across Australia has contributed to a decline in our fish stocks.

A National Fish Habitat Strategy is our plan to improve our recreational fisheries for the future. We know that by improving the quality and extent of habitat, fish will thrive. We believe that recreational fishers are the key to fish habitat rehabilitation and we need to work together if we want to bring the fish back. How good our fisheries are, depends on us. Read the Strategy here.
