On occasion, a planned research and development outcome could be more successful if a number of related projects were managed by employing higher levels of coordination, integration and communication. The FRDC either on its own initiative or at the request of a stakeholder group, can establish a managed subprogram.
is a national Subprogram for the FRDC, established to guide investment in national Research, Development and Extension (RDE) addressing key priorities of the recreational fishing community. Importantly, Recfishing Research also plays an important role in communicating research results to the recreational fishing community.
The Recfishing Research Subprogram is managed by an expertise- based steering and scientific committee, appointed by the FRDC. In addition to its leadership and strategic roles, the committee advises the FRDC on allocation of subprogram funds to projects consistent with stakeholder priorities and relevant R&D plans; actively oversees progress of projects under its direct management; and provides technical advice to the FRDC on issues, applications and projects beyond those under its management.
Research, Development and Extension Plan
Recfishing Research Subprogram has developed a Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) Plan that provides a framework to identify and invest in key strategic research needs of Recfishing stakeholders. See the plan.
Call for Applications
The FRDC invests through a flexible approach. Part of this approach allows the Research Advisory Committees (RACs), Industry Partnership Agreements (IPAs) and Subprograms to call for applications based on their priorities up to three times per year in November, April and August – see whether this IPA has put forward any priorities in the current call for applications.
