Sustainable management of natural resources requires robust and timely information inputs, particularly in multispecies or cross-jurisdictional fisheries such as the Murray-Darling Basin's (MDB) recreational fishery. Innovative data collection and monitoring approaches, management tools and cooperative efforts enable the requirements of fisheries managers to be met efficiently and cost-effectively. This paper considers a number of pioneering initiatives operationalised under the Native Fish Strategy that have helped inform sustainable management outcomes for the recreational fishery in the MDB.
