Victorian Expression of interest: Female appointment to the Recreational Fishing Grants Working Group

If you want to play a key role in deciding how recreational fishing licence fees are spent, the Victorian Fisheries Authority wants to hear from you. Fishing licence fees fund projects that improve fishing opportunities, such as building fishing platforms, enhancing fishing habitat and undertaking research. The Recreational Fishing Grants Working Group provides advice to the Minister on how best to spend fishing licence fees.

Currently, there is one position open for a female member. We’re looking for someone with interest, experience and/or knowledge of recreational fishing in Victoria. Members must be Victorian residents at the time of their Expression of Interest and through the term of their appointment to the Working Group. Working Group members receive a sitting fee for meetings and reimbursed for travel and other expenses.
