AS part of an angler survey, NSW DPI is hoping to install cameras at Thompsons Creek Dam, NSW, to assess angler visitation. They say that at this stage the information collected will be used for assessing site use (numbers and times) but will not be used for compliance. They may also include a log book to get some additional information at the camera site. As part of the planning for this, Energy Australia (owners of the dam) has asked DPI to inform anglers that the recording device may be put in place. While not yet installed they aim to have the camera up and running within a month or so, pending final approval and development of a data management plan. The camera will be sign-posted.
