You need to apply for a general fisheries permit if you want to engage in activities that are not normally allowed under fisheries legislation.
Example activities that may be approved include:
- research projects
- educational activities
- trialling new gear
- getting temporary relief from natural disasters.
A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.
This permit cannot be transferred.
Contact the agency prior to applying for this permit as you will need advice about the type of permit you require (for example, research) and the information required for the application.
You can then apply by submitting a completed General fisheries permit application form with the relevant fee to the agency as per the instructions on the form.
