You will require this licence if you intend to sell seafood for human consumption. There are three categories of this licence:
- seafood wholesaler
- seafood retailer
- seafood retailer (vehicle / boat).
Each category allows different actions to be undertaken:
- seafood wholesaler is authorised to sell seafood by wholesale or retail, and may only process the seafood to the extent necessary to preserve it (such as storing, chilling and freezing)
- seafood retailer is authorised to sell seafood by retail, and to undertake an incidental amount of wholesaling
- seafood retailer is authorised to sell seafood from a vehicle or boat.
If you intend to undertake processing activities such as filleting or canning, you will need to be licensed as a seafood processor.
