Every time you buy a recreational fishing licence in Victoria, your funds are held in the Recreational Fishing Licence Trust Account by the Victorian Government and re-invested into program and project that improve recreational fishing in Victoria.

A Large Grants Program is open once a year (project from $5,001 to $100,000) around October while a Small Grants Program is continually open for projects up to $5,000.
To find out more and how your licence fees are contributing to improving your fishing experience or how your idea for a project can apply for funding visit the Victorian Fisheries Authority website.
