The Service receives assistance from Angling clubs and associations in regard to on-ground works, such as fencing, building, cleaning and stocking, and clubs work in with the Service in the promotion of trout fishing at a number of local and regional fishing events. Contact your local angling club for more information.
Fishcare Tasmania is a program that educates the community about sustainable recreational fishing practices. The program is operated by the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE) Wild Fisheries Management Branch with primary funding from Fishwise funds (from sea fishing licence fees). IFS periodically grant funds for Fishcare to assist in certain inland water activities, most notably is the annual trout weekend at Liawenee.
Fishcare volunteers are enthusiastic individuals who give up their time in order to help members of the recreational fishing community with good fishing practices and provide advice about fisheries rules.
