Perth metro fishers will benefit from the new Artificial Reef announced as part of the recent round 7 of the Recreational Fishing Initiatives Fund of funded projects.
In making sure the project provides fishers with a reef that they want and value, community consultation with fishing clubs and other stakeholders, which aims to deliver the greatest value to the people, will be conducted across the month of August.
The final location and design of the reef will impact on the type of fishing experiences the reef will provide. This Artificial Reef may deliver new pelagic fishing opportunities for species such as mackerel, samson fish and yellowtail kingfish or it may result in more of a demersal focus where we’ll likely see many iconic species such as Pink Snapper or Baldchin Groper.

How can I have my say?
