Join OzFish for its latest Fish Talk roadshow, bringing leading experts together to share their knowledge with recreational fishing communities throughout northern Victoria.

The event will emphasise the importance of maintaining healthy environments for native fish, where the speakers will discuss the challenges facing our rivers, recent conservation success stories, and opportunities for individuals to contribute to restoration initiatives.

Attendance is free with catering provided.  Lucky door prizes will also be given away on the night.


Braeden Lampard – OzFish Unlimited Program Manager Murray Darling Basin
Braeden Lampard has over 9 years’ experience working in local stakeholder engagement, communications, and fish ecology. Braeden is a dedicated and highly motivated professional who has had a strong interest in the environment industry since his childhood, which started from camping, bushwalking, and fishing along the Murray and Darling Rivers.

Andrew Briggs – Victorian Fisheries Authority
Andrew has worked in the waterway health and recovery industry for over 20 years. For most of this time he worked with the North East Catchment Management Authority in Victoria specialising in riparian and instream habitat restoration projects, including large wood structures, boulder-seeding and other structural works for both native fish and trout. Many of his projects were delivered in association with rec fishers and other community organisations. Andrew is currently working with the VFA on “Cracking the Code” for Macquarie Perch recovery, the Victorian Fish Habitat Improvement Fund and other exciting projects.

Caitlin Berecry – OzFish Unlimited Social Media & Content Manager, Women in Rec Fishing & Boating Leader
Having grown up on farms, Caitlin’s connection to land and water was well established before the love affair with fishing began, and if she’s not out fishing, you’ll find her podcasting, writing, and sharing fishing content online. With a background in community management, marketing and communications, Caitlin is committed to advocating for the sustainability of our fisheries and educating others to take action in their own backyards. With her experience in building capacity in rural communities, Caitlin is passionate about creating agency in individuals to enact positive social and environmental change.

Doors open from 6:15PM for a 6:30PM start. A 1/2hr Q&A session will be held at the end of the event, so keep your questions in mind!

Registration is essential. We hope to see you there!
