Fishability recognise the need to ensure recreational fishing is accessible and affordable to all in the community, regardless of ability, skill level or experience.

Fishability assists people requiring support to experience the joy of fishing by using purpose-built motorised rods, reels and fishing rod holders and providing organised shore and jetty based fishing activities, use of wheelchair accessible vessels for guided river, ocean and estuary fishing trips; advice on universally accessible fishing locations and facilities; and

Acts in an advocacy role in promoting inclusive participation in recreational fishing.

The type of fishing gear and level of assistance we provide is dependent on the individual abilities and expectation of the participant.
