Fisheries Minister Monty House has announced the latest round of FISHCARE WA grants for six community projects that will help raise community awareness of Western Australia’s aquatic environment.
More than $15,000 has been approved for the latest round of grants, taking the total value of funding to nearly $113,000 for 50 community projects since the Minister launched the Fisheries WA initiative in 1996.
The latest grants approved went to:
a CBC Fremantle project ‘Aquaculture and farming’ - $901.30;
a Geraldton Secondary College project ‘The Tilapia - its impacts on the Greenough and Chapman River ecosystems’ - $3,000;
a West Busselton Primary School project ‘Geographe Bay marine environment’ - $2,266.60;
a Busselton Senior High School project ‘Habitat rehabilitation and freshwater native fish research’ - $3,000;
the Bennett Brook Catchment Group project ‘Investigation and revegetation of fish ladder’ - $2,960; and -
Murdoch University for the ‘Publishing of brochure/poster on freshwater fish of South-Western Australia’ - $2,900.
Mr House congratulated the latest recipients and encouraged other community groups and individuals, with a worthwhile project, to apply for this financial support.
“It is important to encourage community involvement in managing WA’s fish and fish habitats, as we all share a responsibility to look after our fish resources and ensure WA has fish for the future,” he said.
