The Australian Council of Prawn Fisheries (ACPF) provides up to $4000 to a fisher to investigate a problem (eg bycatch solutions, on-board processing, community acceptance/social license, etc) as part of ACPF’s People Development budget.
ACPF is calling for fishers who have a prawn fishing problem to solve by
- Travelling to another prawn fishery, or another fishery sector, to investigate solutions to the problem they’ve identified
- Attending a related conference/seminar on the topic, and
- Reporting back to one of ACPF’s Board meetings (usually March and September each year) with their recommendations
ACPF would like to hear from any interested fisher with the problem they would like to tackle, their plan of investigation and the proposed budget.
