Fishing for views on draft state plan

RECREATIONAL anglers can have their say on a 10-year draft plan to boost Victorias freshwater fisheries. Member for Northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes said the draft plan titled Revolutionising Fish Production and Stocking in Victoria will rebuild threatened native fish populations. The aim of the draft plan is to make fishing in Victoria even better tomorrow than it is today, Ms Symes said. Whether youre after a cod or golden perch in Eildon, a bass in Blue Rock or trophy browns in Toolondo, we want to make freshwater fishing in Victoria the envy of Australia. The draft plan provides a high level strategic vision and key goals for fish production and stocking at the Snobs Creek hatchery over the next decade. People can view and comment on the plan online by 16 September.
