Pilbara News - - News -

Ed­u­ca­tors from the West Kim­ber­ley and the Pil­bara were in­vited to pre­sen­ta­tions by the De­part­ment of Fish­eries to help them in­te­grate sus­tain­able fish­ing mes­sages into their class­room.

The pre­sen­ta­tions, run at the start of March in Broome, Kar­ratha and South Hed­land, fo­cused on the de­part­ment’s sus­tain­able man­age­ment of aquatic re­sources and ex­plained the in­cur­sions of­fered to schools through­out the north.

The de­part­ment’s north­ern com­mu­nity ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cer Jes­samy Ham said the ses­sions at­tracted good turnouts.

“As fish­ing is such a big part of our lives in the north, it is im­por­tant that the mes­sage of sus­tain­able fish­ing is taught from a young age and all through the school years,” she said.
