Tips for Using Fishing Maps

Open the Maps menu and zoom into your fishing area using the touchscreen. Touch on the red fishing area restriction to see a description of the boundaries. On iOS devices, scroll to see gear and species restrictions, or on Android devices, select 'See Restrictions'.

The Tas Fish Guide app will cache map data for areas previously viewed by you on your device. To have access to map data when fishing in areas out of phone reception, view these areas whilst you have coverage, prior to going fishing. Area restriction information will be visible regardless of whether you have reception.

Maps for the iOS version of this app are provided by the Land Information System Tasmania, DPIPWE.

Fishing Maps Disclaimer

The maps displayed on this application should be used for reference purposes only, due to the restrictions of GPS technology. The boundaries of fishing restriction areas are indicative only. Refer to the Living Marine Resources Management Act 1995 and the Inland Fisheries Act 1995 and the legislation made under those Acts for specific boundary descriptions. The maps in this application should not be used for navigation purposes.
