Rock Fishing it's Australian most dangerous recreation sports. Rock fishing has seen at least 68 deaths in the last five years in Australia with almost all victims not wearing fishing life jacket vest – an issue that is one of the areas to be explored by an inquest into the sport and how to make it safer. Despite claiming numerous lives, many Australian rock fishermens continue to ignore warnings to wear fishing life jacket vests. Each rock fishing rescue by Australian emergency services costs tax payers between $450,000 and $600,000 I don't know way so much. Rock fisherman will continue to place themselves in danger; however life fishing jackets will keep them alive long enough to get rescued and sending back to their families alive.
