About this event

Join us for our annual Pest Fishing Cup at JJ Smith Park, Marsden. It will be a fun day of fishing for all ages and your chance to win great prizes.

By competing, you’ll help to remove Tilapia, Carp and other introduced fish (Goldfish, Koi, etc) from our local waterways. Coming along is a great way to learn more about sustainable fishing and our natural environment!

This is a family friendly event, so dust off the rods and bring along the whole family. Great prizes are on offer for those who catch fish, and even those who don’t!

Spaces are limited, so registration via eventbrite is required.
