People’s Choice Award PFA World Fisheries Day competition

World Fisheries Day, is celebrated on November 21, and is dedicated to highlighting the critical importance of healthy ocean ecosystems and to ensure sustainable stocks of fisheries in the world.

To acknowledge this important event, the Professional Fishers Association of NSW (PFA) held its inaugural PFA World Fisheries Day competition for NSW commercial fishers. We asked NSW commercial fishers to submit social media clips showing how members of our industry work tirelessly to put fresh, local seafood on people’s plates. Below are our shortlisted finalists for voting in the Peoples Choice Award.
