MarineDiscoveryWest, the Department of Fisheries’ community and schools education program, operates at the Naturaliste Marine Discovery Centre (NMDC) and at many other locations around the State including Broome, Busselton, Bunbury and Albany.

Our education team and our Fisheries Volunteers develop and deliver learning programs about WA’s unique and fragile aquatic environments, our precious fisheries, the science that underpins management, and, of course, how to fish and live sustainably.

Whilst the programs and activities address outcomes in the learning areas of Science and Society and Environment, they will also cover outcomes in the other learning areas.

Our learning programs are based on current science and data generated by scientific research, and are supported by the Department of Fisheries’ Research Division and the WA Museum.
