Tasmanian Inland Recreational Fishery Management Plan 2018-2028

This page will host documents and information relating to the drafting of our new state fishery management plan - check here for up to date information on the drafting of the Tasmanian Inland Recreational Fishery Management Plan 2018-2028

It is our vision to have sustainable, vibrant and healthy inland fisheries that are the envy of Australia and the world.

The Tasmanian Inland Recreational Fishery Management Plan 2018-28 (2018-28 Plan) will be a guiding document for the Inland Fisheries Service (IFS) in managing the recreational trout fishery. It will outline measures to support the sustainability of fisheries and encourage participation. The 2018‑28 Plan will also seek to balance the needs for individual fishery management while looking to group like fisheries and simplify regulations.

For the last ten years, the Inland Fisheries Service has managed the fishery under the guidance of the Tasmanian Inland Recreational Fishery Management Plan 2008‑2018 (2008-18 Plan).

The process for developing the 2018‑28 Plan begins with the release of this Issues Paper: Proposals for the Tasmanian Inland Recreational Fishery Management Plan 2018-28 (Issues Paper).

This discusses proposed changes to regulation and policy including changes that we have already made since the 2008–18 Plan was adopted.

We invite your comments on these proposals.

Comments have now closed for the Issues Paper.
