Tasmanian Recreational Fishing Survey

The Wild Fisheries Management Branch and the University of Tasmania's Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies have released the results of the 2012-13 Tasmanian Recreational Fishing Survey.
Over 3000 Tasmanian households were surveyed between November 2012 and October 2013 to see if they fish recreationally. 780 of these households, representing over 2000 persons then provided details of their fishing activities over a 12 month period.

Amongst the main findings of the survey:

Coasts for Comment - Celebrating Coasts and Stimulating Discussion
Wednesday 3 December

What and Who: An event to celebrate the efforts of coastal and marine conservation efforts and to raise awareness of critical issues

A range of speakers will present on topics including cooking foods from our coast, coastal climate change adaptation, Aboriginal connections to the coast, managing marine debris, balancing up aquaculture practices, and more. The event aims to challenge thinking, build knowledge, and inspire people to keep working together to care for our coastal and marine environments.

Angling Hall of Fame Inductions

Jeremy Rockliff, Minister for Primary Industries and Water - 22 November 2014

Since the first trout hatched in Tasmania 150 years ago our state has forged a reputation for being our country's premier trout fishing destination.
It is only fitting that we acknowledge and celebrate the fishers who have helped to achieve this world renowned reputation.
I congratulate all those who have helped shape Tasmania's trout fishery in this celebratory year, and pay a special tribute to Les Monson and Ian French who have been posthumously inducted into the Angling Hall of Fame.

Check Your Inflatable PFDs before EVERY trip

Do you have an Inflatable PFD?

  • 72% of Tasmanian boaters do.
  • MAST considers this equates to in excess of 80,000 jackets.
  • Last financial year only one in forty two were serviced by manufacturer’s accredited agents. 
  • Is it auto or manual inflate?
  • Does your crew know how to use a manual inflate PFD?     

Will yours work when required?
