Gone Fishing @ Little Bay

Participants spent the day at Little Bay learning about rock fishing safety gear, lifejackets, understanding the conditions and rock fishing skills. Water safety experts from Maritime NSW, Department of Primary Industries and expert rock fishers Hadi from Team Kingies and Spyros Vasiliades, shared their expert knowledge and experience with our communities. Local lifesavers and lifeguards from Randwick City Council and Surf Life Saving with support from the local Marine Area Command joined the day providing participants with a practical demonstration of lifejackets and rescues in the water. It was a great way to connect and discuss Rock fishing safety with experts in the field and the multicultural group of participants.
