Fishcare Schools Program

Children are our future fishers so Fishcare has developed activities that encourage children to think responsibly about recreational fishing and their interactions with the marine environment.

Fishing clinics

Fishcare runs fishing clinics for children of all ages with the aim of increasing responsible fishing behaviours in young Tasmanians.
 
Fishcare coordinators and volunteers are available in all regions to run clinics and deliver in-school presentations to primary and secondary age children.

Fishcare has access to resources including fishing gear for students to use and can also distribute Recreational Sea Fishing Guides, rulers, gauges and stickers.
