SeaNet is a national environmental extension service run by OceanWatch Australia. SeaNet provides information and advice on reducing environmental impacts, and works directly with industry, managers and researchers to develop and implement improved fishing gear, technology and methods.
There are SeaNet Officers in QLD (Far North and South East), WA, NSW, VIC, TAS and SA. They have hands on experience of working with fishers to develop bycatch solutions. SeaNet Officers are more than happy to visit schools to talk to students, bringing stories about their work and examples of fishing gear.
If your school is interested please contact your local SeaNet officer directly.
