Go country to hook up with fishing rules

We’re heading to the country to share the latest information on sustainable fishing, new rules and season changes with regional fishing families.

Catch up with us at the major rural shows for details of the approaching recreational marron, abalone and rock lobster licenced fisheries. 

We will be at the Esperance Show on 20-21 October, the Bunbury 4WD, Boating and Camping expo on 21-22 October, the popular Brunswick Show on 28 October, the Katanning Show on 28 October and the Albany Show on 10-11 November.

There’s always plenty of fun and interactive games for children and adults at our display. You can also ask us about our improved online fishing rules, what sustainability certification means to WA’s world-class fisheries and being Sharksmart before using the water.

Follow our Facebook page for more information about the individual shows.
