Background


For some time there has been a need to improve communication between recreational fishers and the South Australian Government. We are committed to working with South Australia’s diverse and active recreational fishers to improve the recreational fishing experience.

Recreational fishers were invited to submit their views on the formation, structure and function of a new Minister's Recreational Fishing Advisory Council body, an advisory group to directly engage with the Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development on recreational fishing issues. This consultation ran from 31 August 2018 until 21 September 2018. Read more about this consultation, including the results of the consultation.

Membership of the Minister’s Recreational Fishing Advisory Council will comprise a suitable representative from each of the following groups:

  • FishinSA
  • RecFish SA
  • South Australian Fishing Alliance.

These groups have been asked to submit their nominated representatives directly to the Minister.

The Council will also include five individual members with expertise in recreational fishing, including at least one female member, one inland fisher and one person representing tackle shops.

The Minister will also appoint two government officials as observers for meetings of the Council and the Minister:

  • a PIRSA Fisheries and Aquaculture representative to provide expertise in fisheries management when requested; and
  • a SARDI representative to provide expertise in fisheries research when requested.

The Chair will be selected by the Council’s membership from one of their number. The Chair will preside over all meetings, ensure each meeting has an effective agenda to cover issues that are consistent with the scope and role of the Council, coordinate the members of the Council on key issues and be responsible for reporting to the Minister.
