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.

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.

Great app

Easy to use. A bit buggy - a line appears when viewing species details. User experience could be better and faster. Push Notifications could be a good feature to implement especially for updates to limits etc

Great app

Yep its a first version and could be improved, but it is by far the most convenient way to access info while you are out there and faced with an uncertainty. And yes pictures of fish to select from to lead to identification and details would be a huge improvement.
