Each year, more than 277,000 men, women and children engage in recreational fishing in South Australia. For future generations to continue to enjoy this popular past-time, Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA) must make regular assessments of our fish stocks and implement policies to ensure the long-term sustainability of recreational fishing.
On Saturday, the South Australian Government released three papers which outlined proposals for community consultation looking at a range of measures to manage recreational fishing.
• Draft management plan for recreational fishing in South Australia;
• Review of size, bag and boat limits in South Australia's recreational fishing sector; and
• Management options for King George Whiting in South Australia (commercial and recreational).
The public consultation period ends on Friday, April 29.
