MARSHALL ENCOURAGES SCHOOLS TO ‘GET HOOKED’ ON FISHING

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall is calling for schools in the region to sign up for this year’s ‘Get Hooked…it’s fun to fish’ recreational fishing program.

 

Mr Marshall said it was a great program which teaches primary-aged children to fish recreationally and encourages them to get away from screens and get outdoors instead.

 

“I really encourage schools around the Northern Tablelands to join; fishing is one of NSW most popular recreational activities and no one is too young to ‘Get Hooked’ on fishing,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“Elements of the program include a ‘fun resource kit,’ DVD and comprehensive teachers manual for educators, as well as the assistance of enthusiastic volunteers and workshops, to take children on a fun, fishing journey.

 

“The program follows the marine mascots Snappy and Squirt, as they venture into learning about sustaining quality aquatic habitats by practicing safe and responsible fishing.

 

“The program is designed to teach students show to fish responsibly as well as to be mindful of the environment and aquatic habitats.”
