New South Wales Department of Primary Industry (NSW DPI) Fisheries department are usually in charge of keeping our waterways safe and making sure that fish habitats are left healthy after fishing.nsw dpi fishing

Instead of patrolling and handing out fees those busted illegal fishing they’ll be hosting their inaugural “Go Fishing NSW” Day across six locations across NSW on Sunday December 6 2015.

It promises to be a great day out for the whole family whether you’re a bunch of experienced fishers or just trying it out for the first time. The day will also help NSW DPI promote the role commercial fishers play in the industry and to outline the cultural significance our fishing resources are to Indigenous people.
