Published 14 February 2023Limiting the environmental impacts of recreational fishing by completing an environmental impact assessment and a recreational fisheries strategy.
An environmental assessment (EA) is being done to consider the effect of recreational fishing on:
the broader ecosystem
economic and social issues.
This process will be informed by the threats and risks arising from recreational fishing identified in the statewide Threat and Risk Assessment and enable the development of a NSW Recreational Fisheries Strategy (RFS). The RFS will provide a long-term vision and ensure fishing activities are sustainable and provide quality recreational fishing into the future.
