However, to protect our fish stocks from dwindling further, we have several policies and regulations in place – with a weekly or annual license required by law for recreational or commercial fishing.
The process is simple:
- To apply for a fishing license, click here . Make sure you do this before setting out.
- If you catch a tagged fish, it is likely to belong to one of our over-exploited species. To assist our researchers, please report the fish by calling 800 555 – mentioning the tag number, colour and size, along with the location where it was caught.
- If you are going on a fishing excursion with a licensed company, you will not need to obtain an individual license – the company should already have the correct commercial approvals to cover you.
