Recreational Sea Fishing Strategy

A Recreational Sea Fishing Strategy is a key aspect of a package of in​itiatives announced for Tasmanian recreational fishers.  

The Strategy will provide a more explicit framework for the recreational fishery and how it should operate into the future.  It will more clearly delineate the vision, goals and guidelines for marine recreational fisheries and the way they are managed.

The Strategy will address:​

  • resource access and sustainability
  • modernising compliance to fairly manage access for Tasmanians, and including the increasing numbers of fishing tourists
  • research priorities to guide future policy and decision-making
  • social and economic values
  • education and awareness.

A fact sheet outlining the package of recreational fishing initiatives announced in September 2019 is available below:
