Public Register of Fishing Authorities
Queensland’s fisheries resources are a publicly owned resource.
The Fisheries Act 1994 requires information on authorities
(details of licenses, quotas and permits) to be available to be publically viewed.
FishNet allows the public to view the Register of Fishing Authorities.
You may also wish to inspect the register if you are buying a fishing licence,
need information for a court case or tribunal matter,
or are generally interested in how fisheries resources are being used.
However, there are rules that govern what type of information we provide. In
general, we can’t give some private information, such as certain contact
details, or information about where an individual actually catches fish.
There are other details, for example postal addresses of authority holders,
that are not shown in this site but form part of the Public Register of Authorities.
This information is available by contacting the Licensing Unit through the Department's Business Information Centre on 13 25 23.
