About us

Recfishwest is the peak body representing the interests of 740,000 recreational fishers in Western Australia. We are a not-for-profit community based organisation that strives to ensure high quality recreational fishing experiences are maintained and enjoyed, as an integral part of the WA lifestyle.

Recfishwest aims to be an effective voice, promoting the best interests of recreational fishers in Western Australia. Recfishwest also aims to promote the value of recreational fishing as an enjoyable and sustainable pastime.

We recognise fisheries as a resource which must be managed in a sustainable way and promote the message: “FISH TODAY FOR TOMORROW”.

Recfishwest’s Board of Management includes eight directors and Recfishwest currently employs six full time professional staff including a Chief Executive Officer. A series of reference groups and committees, as well as Recfishwest members and volunteers provide input and expertise towards Recfishwest activities.
