Have Your Say

As the voice of recreational fishing in Victoria we are the ‘go to’ organisation to provide comment and advice on a variety of matters that may affect the quality of recreational fishing.

Below are current consultation processes that have come past the VRFish office that we are consulting on. We encourage recreational fishers to participate and have your say. If there is a consultation process that does not appear and VRFish should be aware of, please contact us.

In addition, we will post ours surveys and polls conducted by VRFish to collect your views and opinions on certain issues.

Also, don’t forget to contact us if you have an issue or ideas how to make fishing better in Victoria.
