Just because you’re not a scientist, doesn’t mean you can’t contribute to science.
Good science is based on good data, and there’s no better community to contribute to good fisheries management than the recreational fishing community.
Fishers are on the water all over Western Australia and can contribute in many ways from fish tagging to artificial reef monitoring to simply dropping off your fish skeletons after a days fishing.
Check out some recent projects which involved the community coming together and playing a part in research.
