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).
A 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). A seafood retailer is authorised to sell seafood by retail, and to undertake an incidental amount of wholesaling. A 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.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
