Building on the back of the success of the South West artificial reefs project, recreational fishers are set to benefit from a number of other similar reef projects at various stages of completion throughout the State.
An artificial reef is planned for Perth’s north metro waters and is one of 11 new recreational fishing projects worth almost
$2 million funded by the Recreational Fishing Initiatives Fund.
Work has begun on the new Esperance artificial reef with volunteers from the Esperance Fishing Club helping to pour concrete for the 128 modules that will make up the structure.
Meanwhile, the new $1 million Exmouth artificial reef, set to be one of Australia’s largest, will be located near the Exmouth Boat Harbour inside Exmouth Gulf, providing the community with new, safe and accessible fishing opportunities.
