You will need to register all boats you will use for commercial abalone fishing. You must not use more than one registered boat at any one time.
You will need to ensure a registered boat used in commercial abalone fishing is always in the charge of a registered boat master who is endorsed on the licence. A maximum of three registered masters are allowed to be endorsed on a licence.
An individual catch quota system applies in each of the Central, Southern and Western Zones. Licence holders may transfer their quota entitlements to another licence holder in the same zone, temporarily or permanently.
