Community Resources

Community fisheries resources in Tasmania include the Fishcare Tasmania education program and the Fishwise Fund which is revenue from the sale of sea fishing licences - your licence fees at work! Fishwatch is a fisheries compliance hotline for reporting information on illegal fishing activities. These programs improve fisheries management, so all Tasmanians get the most benefit from our fishing resources.
