Port Phillip fishers celebrate bay fishing

  Published August 15th, 2016

Victorian Minister for Agriculture, Jaala Pulford today welcomed key fishing industry representatives and recreational anglers to the first Port Phillip Bay Conference in Altona.

The conference will provide an opportunity to hear fisheries experts talk about the current progress towards the removal of commercial net fishing and the health of key fish species in Port Phillip Bay.

Ms Pulford also announced the 17 successful recipients of Recreational Fishing License fee grants worth over $1.1 million, including:

More than $76,000 for a three year tagging program to understand the movements of Victorian King George whiting to their spawning areas
$147,000 to create living shellfish reefs and rebuild fish habitat in Port Phillip Bay
$25,000 for a  flathead stock enhancement study to  assess  the  feasibility of hatchery production of flathead

These projects across Victoria range from habitat improvement in Port Phillip Bay to infrastructure improvements such as new fish cleaning tables and access improvements.

Presentations  at the  conference will explore new developments in snapper, kingfish and southern calamari research and the recent habitat improvement efforts in the bay.

Attendees will also hear from passionate recreational fishing advocate, Rex Hunt, and  have the opportunity to participate in a panel to discuss the future of recreational fishing in the bay.

The removal of commercial net fishers from the bay is a key commitment under the current Labor Government’s $46 million Target One Million plan for recreational fishing, which aims to get more Victorians fishing more often.

The Government has now removed 33 of 43 commercial net fishers from the bay. The remaining ten fishers continue to fish under a strict catch limit, utilising existing fishing methods including nets.
