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.
