Recreational Fisheries Forums
Public fisheries forums are held periodically in regional areas around the state including recently in Burnie, Smithton, Hobart and Launceston. The forums are primarily for interested recreational fishers and the general public to hear presentations from IMAS fisheries researchers, DPIPWE fishery managers and to discuss local recreational fishing issues.
