Recreational fishing

The public consultation period for the Green Paper on Fisheries Management Reform in Queensland has now closed. 

All feedback provided will be considered and taken into account in the development of a strategic policy that will guide the management of Queensland's fisheries resources into the future.

Queenslanders are keen anglers. Each year, more than 700,000 fish for recreation, with anglers taking home around 8500 tonnes of fin fish, crabs and prawns. Queensland's fisheries resources are also important for tourism, attracting anglers from around Australia and the world.
