The South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC), in partnership with RecFish SA, is developing a recreational fishing tourism strategy to help the sector achieve full potential and maximise its contribution to the South Australian economy, people and nature.

SATC recognises the important role that recreational fishing tourism plays as part of the wider visitor economy and is committed to supporting a sustainable Recreational Fishing Tourism sector. Recreational fishing tourism is an important driver of visitation across the State, and recreational fishers contribute to the dispersal of tourism dollars deep into the regions.

The aim of the strategy is to:

• Consolidate South Australia as a key recreational fishing tourism destination through promotion of its natural assets and fishing experiences and destinations through the state.

• Provide a framework and set of indicators that highlights the economic contribution of recreational fishing tourism to our state.

The strategy uses the following strategic priorities

  • Marketing
  • Experience and Supply Development
  • Collaboration
  • Industry Capability
  • Recreational Fishing Events
