The Fishability map was first developed in 2015 and updated in 2017. The map identifies “Fishability” friendly fishing locations across Western Australia categorised according to accessibility. There are nearly 150 locations for people to go fishing regardless of whether they are elderly, have poor balance or mobility, are families with young children, use a wheelchair, or are carers looking after persons with a disability.
Our special thanks to Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development and also Recfishwest, government authorities, tackle shops and lots of local fishers for the help with collecting information and providing valuable local knowledge. The creation and maintenance of the Fishability Map was made possible by the Recreational Fishing Initiatives Fund and technical assistance provided by the GIS section of DPIRD.
