Recfishwest welcomes Daiwa on board as a community fish stocking partner

They’re one of the world’s leading fishing brands and now they’re set to help make WA fishing even better!

The team at Recfishwest is excited to welcome Daiwa as official community fish stocking partners — Daiwa, helping boost West Aussie fish stocks for the next generation of fishers.

Well planned, practical, science-backed fish stocking and stock enhancement activities can support great fishing for the West Australian community.

From marron and trout in the South West to yellowtail kingfish and pink snapper off the State’s metropolitan coast and barramundi in the Kimberley, Recfishwest supports many stocking initiatives throughout WA.

“We’re excited to have Daiwa come aboard as our official fish stocking partners to support these programs and help us explore new stocking initiatives for better fishing outcomes around the State,” Recfishwest CEO Dr Andrew Rowland said.

Daiwa said it is “proud to come on board as Recfishwest’s WA community fish stocking partner”.

“Given the alignment in our mission and values, the decision to partner with Recfishwest was an easy one to make,” Kendy Turrell, of Daiwa, said.

“At Daiwa, we believe fishing is an inclusive activity to be enjoyed by all skill levels and at every stage of life and one of our key corporate promises is to ‘Be Earth Friendly’ – to protect our natural resources for future generations.

“We’re excited to be a Recfishwest supporting partner and fully commend their initiatives to protect, promote and develop sustainable, accessible, enjoyable and safe fishing for the benefit of the community.”
