$15 million line
Fishing groups across the Monaro are being
urged to apply for NSW Recreational Fishing
Trust grants to improve recreational fishing.
The Member for Monaro John Barilaro
said $15 million has been allocated from the
sale of recreational fishing licenses to both
freshwater and saltwater projects across the
state in 2016-17.
Grants are available for both large projects
involving more than $10,000 of funding, and
smaller projects involving less than $10,000.
“This is a great opportunity for individuals
and community groups in Monaro to apply
for these grants which improve recreational
fishing in our region,” Mr Barilaro said.
“Applications are open to anyone, including
fishing clubs and organisations, universities,
councils, community groups, individuals and
joint applications are also encouraged.
“Some of the projects funded already
include inland fish stocking, habitat
restoration, fishing workshops and the
improvement of local fishing facilities.
“This program is another way the NSW
Government continues to reinvest this
resource back into the recreational fishing
sector to help ensure a bright future for NSW
Recreational fishing adds about $3.4
billion to the State’s economy each year, and
accounts for more than 14,000 full-time jobs.
Gone Fishing NSW fishing club grants of
up to $2,000 are also available for groups
applying to run community fishing events for
Gone Fishing NSW Day on 15 October 2017.
Applications for small and large projects
close on 13 March 2017.
Applications for Gone Fishing NSW fishing
club grants close on 30 April 2017.
