Holiday fishers reminded to brush up on limits

24 December 2015

Holiday makers and fishers are reminded to make themselves aware of the latest fishing rules ahead of the busy Christmas and New Year holiday period.

Anglers are encouraged to take advantage of the free SA Recreational Fishing Guide smartphone app, which has been downloaded more than 25,000 times since its release in 2013.

This state of the art app, developed by the State Government, offers easy and convenient access to SA fishing rules.

It’s a one-stop shop for everything you need to know about recreational fishing.

The app, available for download for iPhone, Windows and Android, contains all the fishing rules, along with ways to report suspicious or illegal fishing activity.

PIRSA Fisheries Officers and Fishcare Volunteers will be out in force this busy holiday period to educate the community on fishing rules and regulations.

Information on fishing rules and regulations is also available on the 24 hour Fishwatch number 1800 065 522 or at www.pir.sa.gov.au/fishing
