If you have an iPad, get the NZ Fishing HD version instead.

Get recreational fish species information on the go with the Ministry for Primary Industries Recreational Fishing App. The application helps you to identify recreational fish species common in your area through images, then displays relevant information such as the minimum legal size, maximum daily limits and area bag limits. Short videos embedded within the application show how to release undersize fish correctly and also how to measure/determine the sex of crayfish. Local notices will give you updates on any temporary closures in the area.

Good start but...

Great idea so I can have the rules on hand but app needs a bit of work still. Once you select a fish species I can't see a way of going back to the main menu. I have to close the app, clear it from memory then open again.
Also, an identification key for an unknown species would be great!

A cop-out!

This official app may be out of date and incorrect and they will not accept responsibility. We must all get the correct information from elsewhere but they don’t say where.
Why on earth don’t they take responsibility and keep the information correct. Unbelievable.

New lay out ok. But

Like the new lay out but need to be able to have different favourites for each region. I fish three regions.
