The Business of Fishing
Join us as we dive into the world of fishing! Our new podcast, The Business of Fishing, launched in November, and we are thrilled to bring you a series dedicated to our hard-working young fishers! We chat to young commercial fishers, oyster farmers, and aquaculturists about how they work and run their businesses. Full of insight, laughs and of course a bit of business talk – this podcast will keep you entertained episode after episode.
The Business of Fishing focuses on the business aspects behind the scenes, not in the boat. With a diverse range of businesses, ranging from open catch fishing to oyster farming, and all the way to inland breeding of Murray Cod. Highlighting some of New South Wales’ most inspiring young commercial fishers, oyster farmers and aquaculturists who are succeeding in their industry. Not to mention many that have had to adapt and change key aspects of their businesses due to the challenges presented by COVID-19.
The eight episodes will cover topics such as management of income and expenses, how technology can help you work smarter, not harder, the challenges of wanting a family and a career, and adapting your business model to meet the market.
Team leader of the Young Farmer Business Program, Alexandra Hicks said the podcasts are a great way for young people to reach other young people who may be geographically dispersed or isolated.
“This podcast is made by young fishers in NSW, who are telling their stories, told in their voices. They share their journeys and it’s a very inspiring series for young fishers,” Ms Hicks said.
“It’s a really powerful way to learn – from other people just like you. This is the first podcast like this, we are very excited to launch this great informative series!”
