Project Title:

2016-254-DLD - "Protect your catchment, protect your catch" - a collaborative initiative to boost fishery productivity in Corner Inlet

Project Number: 2016-254
Published Date: May 2017 Year: 2017

Description: This project furthers the strong collaborative management of the Corner Inlet catchment, aimed at providing real benefits to fisheries productivity and industry sustainability. This work further embeds the fishing industry in the process of catchment management, and establishes a common voice and united message to take to decision makers and promote meaningful action. We refined our message to ensure it was positive, achievable and broadly supported by three of the region’s largest industries: farming, fishing and tourism. We worked with our established partners in the catchment in hosting a ‘Showcase Day’ in November 2016 that demonstrated to stakeholders and decision makers the firm commitment of all local industries, government and non-government groups, towards achieving a vision of a healthy and productive catchment that supports a robust commercial and recreational fishery.

 

Principal Investigator: John Ford

Key Words: Collaborative management, fish habitat, seagrass, fisheries outreach, community engagement.

Summary: This project is an extension activity of the recently completed FRDC major project 2013-021 “Using local knowledge to understand and manage ecosystem-related decline in fisheries productivity”. We build on the strong collaborative relationships developed in that project to hold and event that both elevates the recognition and standing of the commercial fishing industry, and demonstrates a clear and widely-supported pathway to addressing environmental challenges to the fishery. We achieve this by leveraging our commitment with that of our key partner, the West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority. Together we were able to make our resources go much further and ensure our message reached many more stakeholders.
