The Inland Fisheries Service (IFS) invites you to help shape the future participation in our inland recreational fishery.

Below is the DRAFT Strategy to Increase Participation in Tasmania’s Inland Recreational Fishery 2021‑28 (DRAFT Inland Strategy 2021‑28).

The DRAFT Inland Strategy 2021‑28 outlines the goals, strategies and actions that will be used to increase participation and support investment through an attractive, vibrant and adaptively managed recreational trout fishery.

The DRAFT Inland Strategy 2021-28 will put in place measures to allow informed fisheries management decisions to be made and to maintain and grow partnerships and key relationships. It will guide the continued development of infrastructure, facilities, and access to support the freshwater fishing experience.

This is an opportunity for you to provide input into the ideas proposed in the DRAFT Inland Strategy 2021-28. We will be accepting comment until midnight on Friday 13 August 2021. Submissions can be emailed to infish@ifs.tas.gov.au or posted to PO Box 575, New Norfolk, Tasmania, Australia 7140.
