Fishing and Boating Forums

Recreational fishers and boaters have the chance to hear all about their beloved pastimes and share ideas on how to make them even better at free forums across the state scheduled for 2022.

The forums will provide an ideal opportunity for people to talk face-to-face with government staff from the Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA) and Better Boating Victoria. Several forums were held in 2021 before being postponed in line with health guidelines.

The forums will feature an hour-long presentation from fisheries managers, scientists, boating project managers and local Fisheries Officers, followed by an hour of question time and discussion with those attending.

Presentation topics will include fish stocking, access, facilities including fish cleaning tables, boat ramps, fish habitat projects, enforcement and education, and fisheries research.

In line with Victorian Government health directives, these events will adhere to COVID safe guidelines. If you are feeling unwell, please stay home.
