Fishing App

This handy app will allow you to find the nearest place to buy a fishing licence, check marine catch limits and closed seasons and by selecting "Can I fish here" you can even check whether or not you are in a marine protected area so that you don't accidentally start fishing where it is not allowed.


Fishing licences can be obtained from Surf'n'fish, Shop 6-7/157 Great Ocean Road, Apollo Bay, (03) 5237 6426.

Report Illegal Fishing

If you suspect someone is breaking the fishing rules, do not approach them, move well away and then please phone the 24/7 reporting hotline 13 FISH (13 3474) and tell them what you see.
