A NEW Recreational Fishing NSW advisory body will replace the existing Advisory Council on Recreational Fishing (ACORF).
Minister for Primary Industries Katrina Hodgkinson announced the creation of the new body formed after feedback from recreational fishers from across the state.
Recreational Fishing NSW will advise the minister on matters relating to recreational fishing and will be responsible for providing feedback and guidance on policies and expenditure priorities from the Recreational Fishing Trust.
Recreational Fishing NSW will include eight regional members, and two members with expertise in spearfishing and charter boat fishing, all of whom will be selected by an expression of interest process, as well as an appointed independent chairperson.
The recreational fishing industry generates about $1.6 billion expenditure into the NSW economy each year and creates the equivalent of about 14,000 full-time jobs.
