Have your say on rec fishing

Have your say on recreational fishingSouth Australians are invited to comment on proposed changes to recreational fishing in SA, including changes to some bag, boat and size limits.

Each year more than 277,000 men, women and children take part in recreational fishing in South Australia. It’s an important part of the South Australian way of life and a vital economic driver, particularly for our coastal and river communities.

To ensure this much-loved pursuit can be enjoyed by future generations, regular assessments of management arrangements are needed. The State Government is currently looking at a range of measures – including changes to some size, bag and boat limits – in order to manage recreational fishing.

Three papers, which outline the proposals, have been released for public comment:

A series of public meetings have been held to provide details on the proposals, give the community an opportunity to ask questions and provide input. Additional community meeting dates have been added for April. Please register your attendance at your selected public meeting by email kylie.leppa@sa.gov.au or phone (08) 8429 0516.

Feedback can be submitted until 5pm Friday 29 April 2016.
