Meritorious Captures
ANSA conducts an annual meritorious capture award competition. This prestigious competition runs from 1 July to 30 June every year and has two categories Freshwater and Saltwater. All members are encouraged to nominate for this prestigious award. The fish doesn’t need to be a record capture but as the name implies there must be a meritorious aspect about the capture. The award is decided by ANSA board members and branch delegates attending the ANSA annual general meeting.

Meritorious Capture Award claim forms are available on the ANSA website.  Recent Meritorious Capture award winners are –   2008/9. Russell Emms, Senior member Wollongong SFC – capture of a 73kg Broadbill. 2009/10. Anysia Goldberg, Sub junior member Australian Land Based Anglers Assoc – capture of a 86.6kg Striped Marlin. 2010/11.
