Statewide Recreational Fishing Survey 2020

​Do you hold a Recreational Boat Fishing Licence? If so, you may be contacted from June to August by interviewers from ECU on behalf of DPIRD for the screening component of our Statewide Recreational Fishing Survey.

These surveys and their results help us understand the diverse recreational fishing that occurs throughout Western Australia, and allow us to continue managing fisheries sustainably, ensuring we have fish for the future.

We will ask a random sample of licence holders about their fishing activities in the last 12 months via phone or email. Fishers may then be asked to participate in the upcoming 12-month phone-diary survey.
