Conservation

Healthy environments are paramount to positive recreational fishing experiences. Recfishwest is involved in many fishing conservation projects which ensure healthy fish stocks, habitats and environments. From enhancing habitat through the installation of artificial reefs, to stocking fish species such as mulloway and barramundi, Recfishwest is delivering positive environmental benefits across Western Australia.

To encourage fishing conservation, some types of recreational fishing requires a WA fishing license from the Department of Fisheries. Please ensure you obtain one if required before fishing in WA.
