The official app from NSW Department of Primary Industries provides you with the essential information you need to fish recreationally in NSW.
The app includes; bag and size limits, closed seasons and fishing gear rules. It provides maps to show your nearest FADs, artificial reefs, Recreational Fishing Areas and where Marine Park zones are. It also includes downloadable guides including; spearfishing, fishing safely, trout fishing, regional fishing information and more. Contact DPI for illegal fishing, fish kills, pest species etc as well as local Fisheries Offices. You can view our Facebook newsfeed and pay your recreational fishing licence fee using the app.
We've updated the app to suit newer devices and added a new feature that lets you record your catch log history in the app.
You can choose for the catch log to be your own private catch log or share your catch log with NSW-DPI and opt to have your catch log photo selected for the public catch log gallery.
You may select to receive push notifications related to NSW-DPI Fisheries, which will allow you to receive breaking news and the most up-to-date fisheries info straight to your phone.
This version also includes minor bug fixes.
Recommend to update your app if you have installed already.
Ratings and Reviews
A simple way to make it more useful
It’s a useful app but would be even better if it had a field where we could store our
fishing licence number so we can find it easily when fisheries officers come calling. It would be especially useful for fishing on Sydney Harbour where they are very... diligent.
And it would be extra awesome if you could scan the fish with your camera and have the app tell you what species it is and any limits that apply.
Don’t use the log book
Please be advised, use of this app to log your catches publicly and with the DPI is a dangerous path. They will use the data to lock you out of more spots.
Don’t give them the information.
Do not use this app #stopthelockout
If you are keen to keep fishing do not use this app, do not give these guys any information; they will use it against us and try to lock us out of our fishing spots.
