Sail-World.com : Free recreational fishing application for smartphones
Free recreational fishing application for smartphones

Department of Environment and Primary Industries
The first of its kind in Australia, the Recreational Fishing Application brings the popular Victorian Recreational Fishing Guide to iPhone and Android. The free application features colour illustrations of more than 65 species found in Victoria's waterways.

Anglers can identify their catch and confirm size and bag limits, and access information on permitted equipment and closed seasons.

There is also a marine park boundary locator, which uses a smart phone's internal GPS to determine whether the user is in, or approaching, a marine park or sanctuary.

The application allows anglers to buy a recreational fishing licence online. For those who would prefer to visit a shop, the GPS locator will find the closest outlets that sell licenses, bait and tackle.

Anglers can use the application to connect to Fisheries Victoria's illegal fishing reporting line (13FISH), DEPI's Customer Service Centre and the Water Police too.

Please email your suggestions for the further development of the application to: fishingapp.feedback@dpi.vic.gov.au

Want to Get a Hard Copy?

The Victorian Recreational Fishing Guide is available in hard copy, free of charge, so that you can take it fishing with you or leave it in your tackle box or boat. Hard copies can be obtained from most fishing tackle shops that sell recreational fishing licences, Department of Primary Industry offices or by ringing the Customer Service Centre on 136 186. Please be advised it will take approximately 10 - 14 working days for the guides to arrive after ordering.

Alternatively, the hard copy is available from the Victoria Government Bookshop at Level 20, 80 Collins St, Melbourne.
