Check out the key results from this year’s Perth Metro Shore-Based Survey!

From February to June, our researchers interviewed 1,447 recreational shore fishers and measured 1,041 fish along 60km of the Perth metropolitan coast. This survey provides data on fishing effort and catch for key nearshore species, helping us make science-based management decisions.
