Fish stocking

Stocking and stock enhancement ensures high quality fishing experiences are maintained and enhanced for the West Australian community, forever.

From marron to pink snapper off the State’s metropolitan coast, barramundi in the north and trout in the South West, Recfishwest supports many stocking and stock enhancement projects throughout WA.

Daiwa is Recfishwest’s official community fish stocking partner, helping boost West Aussie fish stocks for the next generation of fishers!

There are many research providers around WA that we partner with, that do a great job in providing fish stocking projects to benefit the community, including the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) Fremantle-based Aquaculture Centre and Broome’s Aquaculture Centre at the Northern Regional TAFE.

DPIRD’s “Policy on Restocking and Stock Enhancement in Western Australia” underpins these efforts. Recfishwest was instrumental in the development of this policy.
