If you ask for a plastic card, you'll be sent a printed Fishing Guide in the mail. If you receive your licence card electronically, check the fishing rules by:
The licensing system issues you with a unique licence number that you can reactivate in future years so you can have the same buoy markings from year to year.
If you held a Tasmanian recreational sea fishing licence in the past then your old number will normally be available.
Marking your gear
You must put your licence number on
rock lobster pot buoys
, unattended rings, graball nets, mullet nets and set lines.
You must also identify the gear type by marking your buoy with a letter (G for graball net, M for mullet net, P for pot, LL for longline and DL for dropline) in clear figures at least 70 mm high X 12 mm wide.
Marker buoys must be at least 195 mm in diameter, spherical in shape and specifically designed as a buoy. Other buoys may be attached, but must not have any markings.
