  • Sustainable fishing practices are paramount to ensure the long term availability of fish stocks. In Australia wild fish stocks are either fully fished or over fished. This has resulted from both commercial and recreational fishing. From 23 March 2001 the NSW Government introduced a recreational fishing licence requiring all recreational anglers fishing in freshwater and saltwater anywhere in NSW to purchase, carry and show on demand their licence. (Licences for freshwater fishing were introduced on 1 July 1998). The introduction of the fee heralds significant changes to the way fisheries in NSW are managed. A component of this change will be the creation of recreational fishing areas the purpose of which is to improve recreational fishing by changing commercial fishing practices in areas popular with large groups of anglers. Commercial fishing methods can be changed or removed or completely stopped in an area under this scheme and commercial fishers will be compensated from the Recreation Fishing Saltwater Trust which is funded by the general recreational fishing fee. The Minister for Fisheries, Eddie Obeid said just prior to the licence fee introduction that "our fish belong to the whole community and the recreational fishing fee will help ensure the sustainability of this tremendous resource for future generations". "All money from the fee will go into a Trust to improve recreational fishing. This includes a commitment to create recreational fishing areas along the State's coastline". "Anglers are enthusiastic about being able to contribute to better fisheries management, more research, expanding the fishcare volunteers program, protection and restoration of fish habitats and better education". Nominations for recreational fishing areas in coastal NSW and being taken and Botany Bay and Lake Macquarie will be the first to be considered. Specifically the new licence fees are put into trusts to improve recreational fishing by: buying out some commercial fishing; creating recreational fishing areas; protecting and restoring fish habitats; promoting and restoring fish habitats; promoting responsible fishing; stocking from fish hatcheries; and investing in more research. In 2001 the licence fee costs were: $5.00 for three days; $10.00 for one month; $25.00 for one year; and $70.00 for three years. Licences are available from nearly 1,000 outlets including major bait and tackle shops, NSW Fisheries offices, over the phone calling 1300 369 365, or at the NSW Fisheries web site: www.fisheries.nsw.gov.au. Exemptions from the recreational fishing licence include: those under 18 years of age, an adult assisting a person under the age of 18 to take a fish using a single rod or to take prawns using a single dip scoop net; the holder of a current Commonwealth Pensioner Concession Card issued by Centrelink or the Commonwealth Department of Veteran's Affairs (Senior's Card, Health Care Card and Repatriation Health Card carriers are not exempt); an aboriginal person fishing in freshwater party to a registered native title claim or who is taking part in traditional cultural fishing under an exemption certificate issued to a Local Aboriginal Land Council; a person fishing in a dam with a surface area of two hectares or less; and those recreational fishing on a charter boat, hire boat or under the supervision of a fishing guide. This NSW Recreational Fishing licence was purchased in 2001 for display in the EcoLogic exhibition. Margaret Simpson Assistant Curator, Transport July, 2001
