Fishers help shape strategy

LOCAL fishing enthusiasts are urged to take part in Queensland Fisheries surveys to help form the next stages of the Sustainable Fisheries Strategies.

Member for Keppel Brittany Lauga said the surveys close on Sunday May 20, 2018.

"I encourage all fisherman to complete a short online survey to help us sustain fishing into the future,” she said.

"For many constituents, the main recreational fishery will be the East Coast Inshore Fishery. The survey is available online at: https://www.surveymonkey

.com/r/XCY6MK9.”

More information about the strategy is available online at: https://www.daf.qld.gov

Member for Rockhampton Barry O'Rourke said the surveys were only short and were designed to give your initial opinions of the proposed options for the future management framework of the fishery.

"To discuss the options in more detail, we encourage you to book an appointment with a fisheries manager, which can be done through our website: https://www.daf.qld.gov

"There will be more opportunities for your feedback in future consultation rounds before any decisions are finalised.”

The survey will take around 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
