As great as fishing is, there’s no point if you don’t live to tell the tale. At Recfishwest, we work tirelessly to promote amongst our community the need for safety to be part of every fishing experience.
We work with local communities, land managers, government agencies and key partners to drive behaviour change amongst fishers through community awareness, messaging and safety initiatives.
It is with support from the community and close partnerships with Key government departments, volunteer organisations and stakeholder groups that are focused on aquatic environment, recreation and safety; that has enabled us to achieve some outstanding projects over the past 6 years. These can be viewed below.
Partnerships include working with Department of Parks and Wildlife, Department of Fire and Emergency Services, Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Surf Life Saving Western Australia, Royal Life Saving Society Western Australia and Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development.
