This study represents the fourth comprehensive assessment of recreational fishing in Tasmania and complements other more targeted assessments of specific fishing activities. It provides a big-picture perspective of recreational catch and effort and thus comparatively rare or highly specialised activities may not be well represented. Therefore, if more focussed surveys are available (e.g. recent assessments of the rock lobster, abalone, gillnet, gamefish and offshore fisheries), it is recommended that greater credence be given to results of these focussed surveys, especially where results differ to those for the general fishing surveys.
