Registered Private Fisheries

The Service has responsibility for the regulation of freshwater private fisheries in Tasmania.  An angling licence is not required to fish at a registered private fishery but anglers are usually required to pay a fee to fish.

All registered private fisheries are bound by the following requirements:

  • the development must not involve any public waters and must be entirely within privately owned property;
  • the development must not impinge on any public fisheries;
  • owners are free to develop and regulate the fishery as they wish within certain limits as specified in each operating licence;
  • owners may request which species of fish they want and can purchase them at commercial rates from registered farms;
  • brown trout may be purchased for registered private fisheries only from the Service;
  • disease control provisions are the same as for fish farms all necessary planning, environmental, and water requirements also apply.

A number of forms are available relating to the licensing and management of Registered Private Fisheries. These are listed and can be accessed by clicking on the files below.
