Welcome to the new Fishing Tasmania website

Fishing around Tasmania just became easier with the launch of the new Fishing Tasmania website.  

The new site has extensive information for beginner and experienced recreational sea fishers, the commercial fishing industry and the wider community who have an interest in understanding how our fisheries are sustainably managed.

Clear links to freshwater fishing and boating safety information complete the package for those who want to explore all the fishing and boating action that Tasmania has to offer.

Try the searchable guide to over 100 Tasmanian fish species, with more landing very soon.

New map features include detailed interactive fishing maps on where to fish and what you can catch.  There are clickable layers to find shore based fishing spots, nearby facilities and fishing restrictions.  Plan your trip by viewing fishing platforms, boat ramps, campgrounds and finding out what you can catch around the coast.

The site will make it easier for fishers to stay within the rules.  Easy to find recreational rules and commercial fishing information will help Tasmanians help keep our fish stocks sustainable and ensure there are fish for future generations to enjoy.

Other features on the new site include new video content on fishing basics for beginners including how to cast and rig a line.

The launch of the new Fishing Tasmania website is the completion of a key action under the Recreational Sea Fishing Strategy 2021-2030.
