Fishing for help

Fremantle Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

MUR­DOCH Uni­ver­sity re­searchers have called on fish­ers to take an on­line sur­vey that will help guide fu­ture man­age­ment of blue swim­mer crab fish­eries.

The sur­vey will touch on what peo­ple want from their fishing trips, their mo­ti­va­tion for fishing, con­cerns and opin­ion on man­age­ment op­tions.

Lead re­searcher James Tweed­ley said this kind of so­cial sur­vey had never been done be­fore in WA.

The sur­vey is com­pletely anony­mous and takes about 15 min­utes to com­plete.

It is part of a three-year study in­ves­ti­gat­ing the so­cial and eco­nomic as­pects of blue swim­mer crab and black bream fish­eries.
