HAVE YOUR SAY ON PIPI FISHERY MANAGEMENT


Media release
14 May 2018
HAVE YOUR SAY ON PIPI FISHERY MANAGEMENT
Public consultation is now underway on the draft Victorian Pipi Fishery Management Plan.
Victorian Fisheries Authority CEO Travis Dowling said the draft plan aims to keep the fishery
viable, profitable and sustainable for all users of the resource.
“The plan’s development has been a collaborative effort between commercial pipi licence
holders, recreational fishers, Aboriginal Victorians and other stakeholders,” Mr Dowling said.
“Victoria’s pipi fishery is a relatively small but high value fishery. It has been an important
supplier of bait for the recreational fishery and is becoming increasingly important as a
supplier of local pipis for food.
“Pipis are also popular amongst recreational anglers who recognise their excellent eating
qualities.”
Mr Dowling said this was Victoria's first Pipi Fishery Management Plan.
"It recognises that pipis are of particular importance to Aboriginal people for personal,
cultural and communal use. To this day, pipis are still used for food."
The draft plan is available online at www.vfa.vic.gov.au/pipiplan and submissions must be
received by 13 July 2018.

I reckon a Hiace proof fence at the bridge across the Tarwin would be pretty high on the locals' agenda
