Port Phillip Bay Sand Flathead Workshop

Sand flathead stocks in Port Phillip Bay have experienced persistent decline over the past 18 years. Motivated by ongoing concerns of recreational fishers and a desire to see the fishery better managed, VRFish advocated for the formation of a stakeholder meeting to discuss management options for the fishery.

As a result, VRFish worked in partnership with the Victorian Fisheries Authority to deliver a focus group on 23rd May 2018, providing interested recreational sand flathead fishers with the opportunity to hear about current science on the sand flathead fishery and discuss their concerns and expectations for the fishery.

VRFish presented the results of a survey of fishers that was undertaken in March to April 2018 to better understand levels and drivers of sand flathead fishing satisfaction in Port Phillip Bay.Β
