PFAYoung Fishers Business Program

Fishing for Business
Are you a young fisher looking to improve your business?

The PFA is partnering with the NSW Department of Primary Industry to deliver the Young Farmers business program to commercial fishers under the age of 40.

Over the coming months, we will be running workshops throughout NSW to help you with your business knowledge.

The workshops will be run by business ActionCOACH, Chris Mackey, who will show you how to help your bottom line. You’ll hear;
  • • How to increase your profitability
  • • How to budget more effectively
  • • How to set goals for your business growth
  • • How to build your team
  • • How to effectively market your products
This is offered to fishing business owners for FREE. Contact us to register on Facebook, via email at, or through a text message on 0418 351 360.

Please register your interest and we will get back to you!


Our goal is to organise a series of workshops supported by online content that will focus on the areas above, and through these workshops, we hope to inspire young fishers to make changes that may improve their business.

Content Delivery

These workshops will be in open seminar format with tailored business advice offered by a career business coach, Chris Mackey of ActionCOACH Australia. Online support will also be made available via a secure invitation-only online learning platform so that young fishers who are not able to attend can gain the benefits of the workshop, with additional online 1-v-1 sessions between fishers and Chris in the following weeks. Fishing business owners will also be given a list of tasks and actions to help propel their businesses after the program is closed.

The surveys suggested there are interested fishers in most of these regions. There will be two workshops at each location. This amounts to 14 workshops in total with online support between them. Chris may also offer telephone support. Zoom and telephone sessions will be for one hour.
