Minister's Recreational Fishing Advisory Council

The formation of the new Minister’s Recreational Fishing Advisory Council is an election commitment of the State Government.

The Council will directly engage with the Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development on recreational fishing issues.

It will provide feedback and advice to government on recreational fishing development issues and initiatives and big picture policy issues that impact the recreational fishing sector.

Consultation process and feedback
