Privileged with access to a range of coastal, estuary and riverine waterways that the state of Victoria provides, fishing and boating have long been part of our lifestyle. Recreational boating and fishing also comprise a major economic sector of Victoria. On average, the licenses issued for boating and fishing generate a combined total of $42 million annually. Recreational revenue adds more than $10 billion to the State’s economy each year. 

This considerable revenue brought in by the boating and fishing community can be largely attributed to its members. However, despite the significant contribution boating and fishing makes to the economy, participants of this sector still face a range of issues that can impact their experience or even jeopardise their safety.

Some of these issues include:

  • Boat ramp locations and quality
  • Access issues
  • Fish stocks
  • Licenses
  • Cleaning stations
  • Waterways policing
  • Fish habitat and aquatic ecosystems health
