The Big Game Fishing Scene in Australia

Recreational fishing is a popular activity in Australia, particularly amongst the male population. It is a time for fun, relaxation and a prime excuse for a boy's weekend away. Fishing is also a popular activity for family holidays and offers fun for the whole family irrespective of age.

Wikipedia defines big game fishing as;

Big-game fishing, often referred to as offshore sportfishing, offshore gamefishing, or blue-water fishing is a form of recreational fishing, targeting large fish renowned for their sporting qualities, such as tuna and marlin”.

Game fish are fish pursued for sport by recreational anglers. They can be freshwater or marine fish. Game fish can be eaten after being caught, though increasingly anglers practice catch and release to improve fish populations”.

The most common saltwater game fish are marlin, tuna, sailfish, shark mahi mahi, kingfish, cobia, wahoo and mackerel.

Individuals who are interested in game or sport fishing are often (certainly encouraged to get) involved in local game fishing clubs which are affiliated with the various state and territory associations who are then affiliated with the Game Fishing Association of Australia (GFAA).

The GFAA is the longest established national fishing association in the world. It has been, and remains, a model and example for game fishing associations around the world. The GFAA is affiliated with the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) and plays an active part in the leadership of the sport of game fishing on a world level.
