- process fish to be served as meals or sold by retail to the public at the place of processing.
Those exceptions do not apply to rock lobsters, prawns or scallops.
Your licence will authorise you to process fish which have been purchased from the holder of a commercial fishing or aquaculture licence. Your licence will not authorise you to process marron, unless the marron are sold by the holder of an aquaculture licence in accordance with the regulations.
