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 11 free forums across the state scheduled for June, July and August.

From Portland to Lakes Entrance, Boort to Ballarat and seven locations in between, 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.

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.

Seats will be limited to ensure the forums remain COVID safe so registering a seat is essential.
