The management of recreational fisheries

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Coastal fisheries are complex ecological and social systems. In many countries,
including Australia, they have evolved over time with a shift in focus from the commercial to the recreational sector. Recreational fishing can be defined as any fishing for which the primary motivation is leisure rather than profit, and for which harvested animals do not constitute an individual’s primary resource for nutritional needs. It is an ubiquitous activity in marine and freshwater regions of Australia, with most recreational fishing activity occurring in estuarine, coastal and shallow reef areas. The dominant form of recreational fishing is line fishing (angling), although it also includes spear-fishing, the use of various traps and nets, and hand collecting.
