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.”
