Keep It Clean in NSW.

OzFish Unlimited - Australia’s fishing conservation charity together with NSW DPI Fisheries are calling on recreational anglers to help clean up Carawah Reserve this November 19th, 2023. 

Through the statewide KEEP IT CLEAN initiative, both organisations want to see as many anglers get involved.  

No one wants to catch a plastic bag when they’re out on the water and we know the impacts litter can have on local wildlife and marine life. Clean-ups like this make for a better fishing experience for all involved,” said Jonathon Bleakley, OzFish Unlimited spokesperson. 

Rec fishers see the impacts of litter. And it’s not always rec fishing litter that we’re cleaning up but by getting involved fishos are inspiring others to think local and create change. 

“We simply need Central Coast anglers to come down and give a few hours to better the local environment,” said Jonathon. 

Volunteers can meet the clean-up crew at Carawah Reserve at 10am. Look our for the OzFish signage. OzFish will supply all the necessary equipment for the clean-up to take place, but are encouraging volunteers to bring water and wear sun-safe clothing.  

Prizes and giveaways will also be up for grabs. 

This community event is also anYabby Trap Drop Spot.Anglers can bring down their opera house yabby traps and swap it for a free Oar-Gee Plow lure to support sustainable fishing. Opera house nets are now illegal in NSW and those collected will be recycled into useful fishing products.

Registration is essential for the event. Head over to https://ozfish.org.au/event/keep-it-clean-gosford-nsw-november-2023/?swcfpc=1
