If you enjoy fishing from your powered boat, make sure
you're aware of changes to recreational fishing that may
A number of general licensing changes come into effect
on 2 March 2010, including the State-wide Recreational
Fishing from Boat Licence (RFBL) and a new fee structure
for existing licence categories. Importantly, your licence fee
contribution will go directly to research and management of
WA's recreational fisheries.
From 2 March 2010, an RFBL is required to
undertake any recreational fishing activity conducted
with the use of a powered vessel anywhere in the State.
If you don't hold an RFBL you can still go fishing provided
you're in the company of a licensed fisher and you stay
within that person's bag (and boat) limit.
Visit fishforthefuture.com.au or phone the Department of
Fisheries on 1800 726 586 to find out more.
Together, let's ensure WA has fish for the future.
