DO you have an idea or project that will make fishing better in WA?

The expressions of interest period for Round 9 of Western Australia's Recreational Fishing Initiatives Fund (RFIF) is closing soon.

Every year, 25 per cent of the state's fishing licence fees are put into the RFIF and made available for projects that benefit recreational fishing in Western Australia. The Expression of interest period for Round 9 of the RFIF closes on 16 February.

The funding will be injected into community initiatives such as habitat enhancement, stock enhancement, research and data collection, including the socio-economic benefits of recreational fishing.

Applications which demonstrate the support of local recreational fishers will be given preference while funding will be provided to projects that are beneficial and cost effective to the recreational fishing community
