If you haven’t done the National Recreational Fishing Survey yet, please help us out by filling it in. It asks all kinds of questions about your fishing (but not about your fishing spots or your favourite species) so we can build a comprehensive understanding of what fishing looks like in Australia today.

How do you want to keep in touch with fishing during COVID-19?

 … and has CoVid-19 changed your fishing activities in any way?

It’s vital that we measure the impact of the pandemic on Australia’s fishing economy and how the lock-down has affected your well-being, so that the data collated in the National Recreational Fishing Survey takes these variables into consideration.
Help us stay ahead of this by participating in this short survey.
It will only take you about 20 minutes.

Taking this survey gives you even more chances to WIN
in our fantastic fishing prize draws!

The study is funded by the Australian government and the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation.
