OFFSHORE RECREATIONAL FISHING REPORT

“Offshore fishing activities are often the domain of many prized fisheries, particularly for reef species renowned for their excellent eating quality. Game fishing is also an important offshore activity, and some might say the elite realm of recreational fishing, where large trophy fish, including tunas, billfish and pelagic sharks are the target species. This study was undertaken to gain an understanding of the offshore and game fisheries in Tasmania, particularly in relation to the catch of tunas, pelagic sharks, Striped Trumpeter and Blue-Eye Trevalla.” The Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) project full report is available by Clicking here, and a summary report is available to download by Clicking here.
