You will need to apply for a trepang licence, if you intend to commercially fish for trepang - otherwise known as sea cucumber, in the Northern Territory.
This fishery is restricted to six licences and all are currently allocated. No new licenses will be issued granted for trepang fishing, however this licence is transferable.
Existing licence holders may temporarily transfer (lease) or permanently transfer (sell) their licence on receiving the Director's approval. Stamp duty must be paid on the sale before the Director's approval.
For more information, please contact the department.
