Victorians lead way in fishing/parks co-operation

30 Oct 2009

VRFish and major recreational fishing groups have embarked on a new era of engagement and consultation with Parks Victoria, the agency charged with managing many of Victoria’s park assets.

Following four months of discussions, the groups have emerged with a joint communiqué titled “Recreational Fishing and Park Management†that outlines a commitment by all parties to protect, enhance and promote recreational fishing in Victoria.

The communiqué is an encouraging example of co-operation between park managers and stakeholders, including anglers. The communiqué also recognises that recreational fishing enjoys one of highest participation rates in Victoria and acknowledges the economic and social values of recreational fishing.

“The communiqué is already bearing fruit as can been seen from the recent announcements regarding the future management of the important Patterson River parking and boat launching facilities near Melbourne,†VRFish executive officer Christopher Collins said.

The recent appointment of Philip Weigall, a prominent fisher and author, to the (Greater) Alpine National Park Advisory Committee, which is charged with overseeing the (Greater) Alpine National Park management plan review, is also big win for all recreational fishers. “Recreational fishing is now well placed in Victoria to have a positive influence into future park planning efforts,†Collins said.
