Tas eFish App

Tas eFish is a new mobile app for commercial rock lobster and giant crab fishers to fulfil their reporting obligations, an alternative to the telephone reporting process.

The app means commercial rock lobster and giant crab fishers can make fishing reports faster. During its trial, digital reports were completed in less than 50 per cent of the time of taken for the same report using the telephone service. 

Tas eFish is available for all commercial rock lobster and giant crab fishers to download on the App Store and Google Play.  

Work is also underway to extend the app to commercial abalone, commercial dive and shellfish fishers.


Benefits of using Tas eFish

  • 50 per cent faster than telephone reporting
  • Easy to use
  • Guides you through the reporting process
  • Tested by commercial fishers
