New South Wales Government has announced a unique initiative to develop wilderness fishing opportunities via an eco-hut program developed by the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) with the assistance of National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS).
The initiative involves the establishment of remote eco-fishing huts in national parks and other areas across the state.
DPI Group Director, Recreational and Indigenous Fisheries, Peter Turnell, said the trial had been tested by a number of fishing groups.
“Fishing is one of this country’s greatest pastimes,” Mr Turnell said.
“We’re so lucky in NSW to have some of the best angling spots anywhere in the world.”
