The next round of funding for the Better Fishing Grants, adminis­tered by the Tasmanian Govern­ment, has been announced. The latest round provides grants of up to $150,000 for facilities to im­prove recreational marine fishing opportunities.

Under the $2 million Investing in Improved Facilities for Recre­ational Fishers and Local Commu­nities initiative, the grants aim to make recreational sea fishing more accessible to Tasmanians.

These grants have already de­livered projects such as regional weather monitoring equipment and a new fishing pontoon for the Mussleroe community on the far North East of Tassie. If you have suggestions as to what could make the Tasmanian recreational fishing experience more enjoyable, ac­cessible, environmentally friendly or active, please contact better.fishing@nre.tas.gov.au.
