- access geotargeted fishing rules to help determine if fishing is allowed in a particular location. This feature uses location maps and spatial data
- submit a photo of your catch and use the app’s artificial intelligence feature to assist in identifying the species The Fish ID tool is only available for a limited number of common Queensland fish species
- learn more information about your catch through the provision of information such as species, size, approximate age, and compare the size of your fish to others. This ageing feature is only available for a limited number of common Queensland fish species

You can use the new recreational fishing app when you are in a remote location or have limited mobile signal reception. The app uses cached species information and simplified mapping information as part of its offline functionality.

The new recreational fishing app uses artificial intelligence to help you identify your catch. Help us grow the fish ID database so you get the most out of this new feature — the more images in the database, the more accurate the fish ID tool will be.

Can I fish here?

The layers selection pallet, on the Can I fish here page, does not turn off. It covers the entire screen and has no close button. The only way out of it is to close the app.

Generally the app is useful but it’s the same wording from the fisheries website. Which I find very confusing. I was hoping this would be easier to understand. It isn’t.

I am still in the dark as to where I can spearfish.

Horrible correlation between their mapping vs satellite

Comparing the images on the maps on this app to satellite images is almost impossible. And in the sandy straits they expect you to carry your phone and utilise it with next to no coverage in a lot of the zones.

These zones are getting out of hand and the responsibility for the honest fishers is now to rely on phones where you can’t access the app unless your within coverage seems unfair.

One example I’ll make note of is In the 21st may changes, unless it’s hidden in the archive of the internet, where are the coordinates for the new zone at the front of kauri creek. The app does help with this matter either.

Overall a useful app

Overall a useful app especially the species info and the ‘Can I fish’ here page.

It seems to struggle to open when you’ve got low or no signal while it hunts to log in. I find it better to switch to airplane mode if the signal is low then it opens up faster.

The fish species photos are also a bit vague and could be improved - better ones on the internet usually. But it’s still a handy app.
