Recreational Fishers and Fish Habitat: Craig Copeland's Churchill Fellowship experience

(In 2013, Craig Copeland, passionate fish habitat rehabilitation advocate, manager of NSW Fisheries’ Conservation Action Unit and initiator of the Fish Habitat Network, completed a Churchill Fellowship  to learn what motivates recreational fishers in USA, UK and Ireland to commit their time to restore fish habitat. Craig met numerous recreational fishers who were just as passionate about rehabilitating fish habitat as they were about fishing. He learnt that actions we are undertaking in NSW and Australia, while far behind what was happening in the Northern Hemisphere, are on the right track.)
