North Coast squid closure
The north coast spawning closure for calamari and squid comes into effect from next Monday 1st October until 31st October for waters from Cape Grim east to Cape Naturaliste.
Commercially purchased squid bait can be used but you cannot possess a squid jig attached to a fishing line in the closed area.
Temporary signage has been placed at fishing spots and boat ramps. Read more about the closure.
Become a Fishcare volunteer
Becoming a volunteer is a great way to do your bit for Tasmania’s fisheries and meet other like-minded people. There's a statewide volunteer training session being held in Launceston in early October so enquire now.
What volunteers do:
- Attend fishing and community events including boat shows, fishing competitions and AgFest;
- Pass on practical fishing knowledge and information;
- Maintain local fishing signs and rulers; and
- Assist with the Fishcare Schools Program.
