Fishing Lifestyle

Catching the iconic barramundi is at the heart of the Top End’s lifestyle.

The Territory is famous for fishing, boating and camping thanks largely to our healthy rivers and coasts, teaming with fish and wildlife.  

Fishing is an important part of Territorians’ wellbeing and social life. Recreational fishing brings families and friends together passing down knowledge and sharing experiences. Maintaining this fishing lifestyle is dependent on keeping our Top End coasts healthy.
