Recreational Fishing Trusts - Improvement Grants

ClosedGrant Closed: 3rd of December 2021 Unknown Value: Undisclosed Run By: NSW Department of Primary Industries Further Information: https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/recreational/recreational-fishing-fee/licence-fees-at-work/apply-for-funds

All money raised by the NSW Recreational Fishing Fee paid by recreational fishers is placed into the Recreational Fishing Trusts and spent on improving recreational fishing in NSW. Two committees made up of recreational fishers - one for saltwater and one for freshwater – make recommendations on funding priorities.

Anyone can apply for funding from the Recreational Fishing Trusts, including fishing clubs and organisations, universities, councils, community groups, individuals and so on. Joint applications are also encouraged.

Funding may be provided for:

  • Recreational fishing education
  • Fishing access and facilities
  • Recreational fishing enhancement
  • research on fish and recreational fishing
  • aquatic habitat rehabilitation and protection
  • enforcement of fishing rules

Matching funding is not a requirement, however, other contributions towards the project will improve the value for money of the project.
