The Department of Primary Industries (DPI) is looking for anglers to participate in a research project to reduce deep hooking among yellowfin bream, sand whiting, dusky flathead, tailor and snapper.

Led by DPI scientists Matt Broadhurst and Paul Butcher, the project aims to develop environmentally friendly recreational fishing gears and practices for NSW coastal areas.

"This research aims to use anglers to assess whether certain fishing practices and rigs, including non-offset circle and barbless hooks, can minimise deep hooking among some key inshore species," Dr Butcher said.
