Research & Sustainability Events...
With over 60 years combined experience in the fishing and events industry, SCF, Suntag and InfoFish Australia are proud to announce the next generation of Fishing Competitions! The main focus of these events revolve around the health and wellbeing of our waterways, local fish stocks and the condition of surrounding catchment areas. Using the SCF Research & Events Smartphone App, we collect valuable data from all types of recreational fisherman/women to get an accurate understanding of the current condition of each location an event is hosted. This information will help determine what impact recreational and commercial fishing currently have on our waterways and the steps we need to take to improve or sustain them.
A little about SCF...
We are SCF Australia! We are one of the top online fishing content providers in the country and the number one online fishing presence on the Sunshine Coast and South East Queensland. Our articles, product reviews, news and videos reach over 80,000 people per week on Facebook alone, and is backed by a following of 30,000 subscribers.
Locally we are unrivalled in the fishing demographic which awards us a distinct advantage over the few larger SEQ online fishing entities, as our locally targeted campaigns have a much broader reach than is achievable by any of the top rival pages. We constantly evaluate our content to ensure it is relevant, interesting and informative to all members of the Australian fishing community. We balance our local and national content in such a way that we can maintain our strong local influence without it limiting our growing national reach and popularity.
SCF Australia’s social media platforms have proven powerful mediums for communicating with our dedicated followers. SCF is a resource for fishing enthusiasts run by fishing enthusiasts and a platform where we all come together to celebrate our passion and learn from the experiences of like-minded individuals. Our formula is simple, we only align ourselves with relevant and quality brands we truly believe in and are genuine in our opinions when we express them. Our integrity is important to us and more importantly, to our members and having a reputation for honesty ensures we maintain our influential position in the community.
Displaying how powerful our data collection methods are along with stepping up the atmosphere and celebrations with competitors has dramatically increased our national growth! Our online platforms have been growing by roughly 200 people each week from all states and is expected to continually increase as we continue to improve our events. Considering our marketing plan is still months away from officially starting we have already received a lot of interest for the King of Kings CQ, and have confirmed entrants from Exmouth (WA), Melbourne and Sydney.

Please see below the example of a customised bag mat we used for Ken Mills Toyota at our Sunshine Coast Competition recently..
Your investment will cover the cost of the brag mats, as well as contribute to everything that is required to host an event of this size. Other things include - Insurance, marketing, advertising, equipment hire, design, signage, administration, data collection, smartphone app, website management, permits, liquor, entertainment, security, venue costs, staff, consultants, fees, photography, videography, special guests, trophy’s, junior prizes, novelty size cheques, ect!
The competition will focus heavily on the research and sustainability aspect and will be a great benifit to the community in the sense that it will provide valuable data on the local waterways and the marine life that inhabits them. The data will be used by the Department of Science and other environmental organisations in the planning of future conservation projects and effective management systems. A sponsor partnership with the competition will give your business positive public exposure and goodwill within the community.
