Rock lobster fishers trial recreational catch app

​Recreational rock lobster fishers can log their catch in a Rock Lobster Catch Monitoring App as part of a trial to better manage the rock lobster fishery.

The app is being trialled during the 2022-23 season to collect real-time data to help monitor recreational catch, particularly for the East Coast.

Fishers can win prizes by using the app to log their fishing details, even if no lobsters are caught.

From the start of the 2022-23 season, fishers will be required to record their fishing activity via the app.
