During this Easter and school holiday period, recreational fishers should consider if going fishing is essential.

The Tasmanian Government has a clear position that Tasmanians should stay home to save lives.

If you are going fishing, please follow the latest advice on our website including:

How far can I travel to fish?

Can I go camping as part of my recreational fishing activity?

How many people can I go fishing with?

What procedures should I put in place when I go fishing?

What will happen with my recreational scallop licence?

What about inland fishing?

The COVID-19 situation is changing daily, please check the Tasmanian Government coronavirus website regularly for any updated information.
