WAFIC is the host organisation for the WA SeaNet Programme. SeaNet is an environmental extension service to the Australian seafood industry and provides information and advice on improved fishing gear, technology and fishing methods. Its primary objective is to work with the fishing industry to minimise the catch of non-target species (bycatch) and encourage environmental best practice for industry.
SeaNet extension officers work with commercial fishers and researches to assist in developing and implementing effective and practical solutions to bycatch issues.
