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