Lake Tyers Fisheries Reserve Management Plan
The Minister for Agriculture, declared the Lake Tyers Fisheries Reserve (LTFR) Management Plan on 17 May 2007.
The LTFR was established to provide for enhanced recreational fishing opportunities and to improve the management and monitoring of these opportunities. The Fisheries Act 1995 requires a management plan to be prepared as soon as possible after the declaration of a fisheries reserve.
The LTFR Management Plan describes:
- The geography of Lake Tyers, information on recreational fishing activities and other uses/values of the estuary that may affect recreational fishing opportunities;
- Current management arrangements for fishing activities and for other relevant values/uses of the estuary and surrounds;
- Goals, objectives, performance indicators and actions for management of fishing activities in the LTFR; and
- Process for participating in management of other relevant non-fishing activities in and around the estuary.
Fisheries Victoria prepared the LTFR Management Plan with the assistance of a stakeholder steering committee. The steering committee included an independent chair and representatives from VRFish, the Fisheries Co-Management Council, the East Gippsland Shire Council, Parks Victoria, the East Gippsland Catchment Management Authority and the Lake Tyers Aboriginal Trust.
