Western Fisheries Magazine

Our newly revamped magazine, Western Fisheries, now has a new look and an even stronger focus on marine ecology, research, conservation and management of our State's extraordinary aquatic resources.

The Department of Fisheries manages Western Australia's fish, marine and aquatic resources to world-class standards.

Our commitment is Fish for the future, and by working with the community and key stakeholders, the Department's resolve is to conserve, develop and share the fish and other living aquatic resources of WA, for the benefit of present and future generations.
Recreational Fishing
Western Australia's vast coastline offers people a variety of great fishing experiences. Recreational fishing is a popular activity that involves around 34 per cent of the State's population, contributes more than $570 million a year to the State's economy.
