Victorian Freshwater Fisheries Management Plan - draft

Mar 24, 2018
Victorian Fisheries Authority

Building better recreational fisheries

The Draft Freshwater Fisheries Management Plan (the Draft Plan) is now out for public consultation and we need your feedback by 22 March 2018.

The Draft Plan is all about building better recreational fisheries in Victoria by bringing together fish, water and land management.

The Draft Plan deals with 14 of our most popular recreational species (Murray cod, golden perch, Macquarie perch, silver perch, river blackfish, freshwater catfish, Australian bass, estuary perch, brown trout, rainbow trout, redfin perch, Murray spiny crayfish and common yabby) in rivers, streams, lakes and impoundments.

Key objectives of the Draft Plan are:

  • Healthy recreational fisheries by working together to improve fish habitat and recreational fisheries
  • A deeper understanding of our recreational fisheries – using best available information to manage fisheries
  • Working with Traditional Owners and Aboriginal Victorians – to encourage active partnerships in fisheries management
  • Improving recreational fishing experiences and opportunities
  • Responsible recreational fishing - adopting and promoting responsible fishing practices
