NSW Primary Industries Minister Steve Whan has launched an educational DVD encouraging students to get involved in Industry & Investment NSW’s (I&I NSW) free fishing program.
The aim is to introduce primary school students to recreational fishing while practising safe and responsible fishing.
“‘Get Hooked…It’s Fun to Fish’ teaches children sustainable fishing practices and how to look after aquatic habitats,” Minister Whan said
“It is free to register for the ‘Get Hooked…It’s Fun to Fish’ program for teachers in all NSW primary schools. When schools register, they now receive the DVD, a comprehensive teachers manual, fully equipped resource kit, assistance from accredited Schools Fishcare Volunteers and the opportunity to attend a free practical fishing workshop.
NSW Primary Industries Minister Steve Whan will launch the ‘Get Hooked…It’s Fun to Fish’ DVD at Adaminaby Public School at 11am, Monday August 16.
