Statewide Recreational Fishing Survey - Diary

Congratulations, you are one of over 2,000 Queensland households who have been invited to participate in the 2019/20 Statewide Recreational Fishing Survey Diary Stage, currently being conducted by the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.

You will soon receive a welcome pack with further information about how to complete the diary, including how to log into the diary portal to log your recent recreational fishing activity between 29 April 2019 to 28 April 2020. Fishers can record their recreational fishing activity shortly after they go fishing, either by logging the activity online via the diary portal or receiving a phone call from our interviewers.

The Department will use results from the Diary Stage to generate estimates of recreational fishing participation rates, where and how Queenslanders fish and what they catch and release. This survey will also collect expenditure information which can be used to help understand the economics of recreational fishing.

The survey has been refined over the years and it is easy to participate in. People who participated in previous surveys found it interesting and fulfilling to contribute to important research that helps to sustainably manage Queensland’s fisheries.

You may have received a text message from 0488 826 358 or a phone call from 07 3557 2200 regarding completing the diary. If you have further queries or would like further information about the Diary Stage, please contact the Social Research Centre on:
