USFA Survey on observations in the ocean relating to climate change

USFALate last year, USFA sent an email with a link to a USFA members’ survey that they’re doing in collaboration with the CSIRO. This survey is your opportunity to have a say about changes you’ve observed in the ocean, the likely impacts of climate change on how, where and what you spear, and how our historical competition records can or should be shared with scientists and used in fisheries management.

For those of you who have already completed the survey – thanks!

If you haven’t already completed the survey, please take a few minutes to click on the link below and complete it before Wednesday February 13. It’s important that as many of us as possible complete this survey to ensure that our voice is heard.

This survey is being conducted as part of a collaborative project involving the Australian Underwater Federation, CSIRO, James Cook University, the Underwater Skindivers & Fishermen’s Association (USFA) in New South Wales, & Southern Freedivers in Victoria.
