NSW DPI Research Angler Program (RAP) drop-off locations

Comments Comments
Anglers can donate fish frames to the RAP at any participating tackle shop.

THE NSW DPI Research Angler Program (RAP) relies on fish frame donations from anglers across the state. Fish frames from legal-size mulloway, kingfish, snapper, dusky flathead, tailor, black bream, Spanish and spotted mackerel are used by RAP to collate age and growth data.

There is currently 28 fish frame drop-off locations - from Tweed fisheries office in the north to Eden fisheries office in the south - making it easy for anglers to contribute to the program.

Many local tackle outlets – such as Brent Hancock’s TackleWorld shop in Port Stephens (pictured) - are supporters of the RAP and are happy to take fish frames and store them until a NSW fisheries officer collects.

NSW DPI says, if you’re interested in contributing and catch a mulloway, kingfish, snapper, dusky flathead, tailor, black bream, Spanish or spotted mackerel of any legal size, donate the frame at any participating tackle shop.

Your donation could win you a $50 tackle voucher. As a bonus, you’ll also find out interesting information about your catch.
