To be eligible for this licence, or a transfer of this licence, you must:
- be over 15 years of age
- be a fit and proper person to hold the licence
- If the applicant or transferee is a company, each director of the company must be a fit and proper person to be a director of a company that holds a licence in respect of the blue crab fishery.
If a boat registered for use under the blue crab licence is also used under a licence or other entitlement to take other marine resources:
- that entitlement must either be transferred together with the licence or surrendered before transfer, or
- transfer of the licence separately from the entitlement must not be likely to result in exploitative fishing activities, and the body that granted the entitlement must agree with the separate transfer of the licence.
