Help Stop Illegal Fishing Activities

4 posts in this topic

Some members have expressed concerns about other fishers blatantly breaking the Fisheries Regulations. Here is a suggested list of what you can and cannot do !

Stealing fish and black marketing are a serious problem and can deplete our fish and shellfish stocks on the coastline. This includes keeping undersized fish.

Fisheries Officers spend many hours on patrol, detecting and preventing illegal fishing.

We need your help. Report illegal or suspect fishing activities to your nearest Fisheries Office or use the

Fishers Watch Phoneline on 1800 043 536

Fisheries Hotline Field Office 0419185525

I have been in conatct with Fisheries and Brad Harrison from the Central Coast unit , and he advises us that they are well aware of the problem , and are taking steps to prevent this from occuring.

If you wish to call Brad Harrison and report illegal activities on the Central Coast,

Mobile number is 0419 185 517
