The 6 Rs: Retain

We want to RETAIN access to our current and potential fishable waters and fish stocks within NSW.


Why the RFA made this a priority:

  • Respond to the need for State waterways to be better serviced by boat ramps, jetties,
    fishing platforms and in conjunction with local councils develop off-street permanent
    storage facilities for boats/boat trailers in high density residential areas.
  • Stop any further closures to any jetty, fishing platform, beach, rock platform or shore based
    access point in both fresh and salt unless reasonable alternatives are negotiated including
    vehicular access.
  • Retain safe public fishing access points in areas like Crown Reserves, National Parks, Marine
    Parks and utilising the remaining Crown Roads network.
  • Enable recreational fishing access to our current water storages like Prospect, Cataract and
    Warragamba Dams to enhance the economic stability within the local communities
    surrounding these areas.
  • Maintain fishing recreational access rights to our current Recreational Fishing Havens and
    improve recreational fishing access to any proposed new Recreational Fishing Havens like
    the Hunter, Macleay, Pittwater and Shoalhaven Rivers.
  • Through the establishment and support of an RFA Executive Officer to work with NSW DPI
    and the NSW Government to deliver this priority.

How the RFA hopes the Government will implement the priority:

  • Through the establishment and support of an RFA Executive Officer to work with NSW DPI
