AN estimated $2.195 billion was spent on recreational fishing trips in 2017-18, resulting in combined direct and indirect economic output in excess $3.42 billion.

The report also quantifies other performance figures relevent to recreational fishing, such as:

  • Licence numbers and revenue
  • Estimated catch (and release rates)
  • Most commonly caught species (commercia and recreational)
  • Charter boat revenue and participation
