Sail-World.com : Ideas sought to help improve angling opportunities
Ideas sought to help improve angling opportunities


The Victorian Coalition Government is seeking ideas from fishing and community groups for projects that will improve angling opportunities under the 2013-14 Recreational Fishing Grants Program.

Minister for Agriculture and Food Security Peter Walsh said the program was now open for applications for projects of up to $100,000 to be funded from revenue generated by the sale of recreational fishing licences.

'Recreational fishing is extremely popular and contributes significantly to the economic development of regional Victoria,' Mr Walsh said.

'Fishing is also a great way to spend time with family and friends in the great outdoors and helps people to stay active and connected to their communities.

'The Coalition Government wants to help angling groups and local government agencies to deliver better fishing opportunities, whether that is inland, along the coast or in our bays and inlets.'






Large grants are available for projects up to $100,000 in these categories:

fisheries sustainability and habitat improvement;
fishing access and facilities;
fisheries related education, information and training; and
recreational fisheries research.

Projects funded last year included research to build a stronger and more resilient Murray cod fishery, 450 Fish Right workshops to promote sustainable and responsible fishing to junior anglers, and the installation of 120 wood structures in the lower sections of the Mitchell, Nicholson, Tambo and Snowy rivers to improve fish habitat.

Large grant submissions must be received by 28 February 2014, and are open to fishing clubs, community groups, incorporated bodies, registered companies and government and statutory bodies.

Small grants of up to $5,000 are available all year.
