Australia’s recreational fishers are being encouraged to get behind a new Give Back to Habitat initiative to restore degraded waterways, improving habitats and fish numbers.
Recreational Fishers get active in Seeds for Snapper project
In a first for Australia, hundreds of West Australian recreational fishers will be taking part in a massive effort to restore the lost seagrass meadows of Cockburn Sound in the Seeds for Snapper project.
Remember last year’s Gone Fishing day at Tenterfield Dam? Lots of fun was had but conditions were atrocious, and organisers are hoping to avoid a repeat with a rescheduling of this year’s event to this Sunday, October 28.
OzFish Tenterfield chapter was founded by passionate anglers like Harry Davey who envisage a big future for their local native fishery. Good natural populations of Murray cod and golden perch can be found in the rivers, however they are under threat from land use practices. With a bit of effort from the community the waterways can be rehabilitated.
