Need

After 17 years of unified recreational representation by Recfish Australia, and increasing requirements from the Govt’s environmental sustainablility policies, there is a need to ensure that recreational fishing has a clear and concise R&D plan that sets the outcomes for R&D for this sector. This plan will provide the framework for future development of R&D applications and ensure the optimal usage of resources. The plan will be linked with the sector’s key planning documents.

Objectives

1. To develop a national R&D plan for the recreational sector
2. To develop a mechanism for the implementation of the R&D plan
3. To formulate optimal representative structure for Recfish Australia for steerage of this plan
