Fishcare Schools Program
Fishcare Tasmania is a program operated by the Wild Fisheries Management Branch of DPIPWE that educates the community about sustainable recreational fishing practices.
Children are our future fishers so Fishcare has developed activities that encourage children to think responsibly about recreational fishing and their interaction with the marine environment.
Fishcare runs fishing clinics suitable for children of all ages with the aim of increasing responsible fishing behaviours in young Tasmanians.
We have knowledgeable Fishcare coordinators and volunteers in all regions of the State who are available to run clinics and deliver in-school presentations to primary and secondary age children.
Fishcare Volunteers have access to resources including fishing gear for students to use and can also distribute Recreational Sea Fishing Guides, rulers, gauges and stickers.
