Fish ID at your fingertips

QUEENSLAND’S fishos can now easily identify their catch and check size and possession limits with the launch of a new fishing app for mobile devices.

Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Minister John McVeigh said Fisheries Queensland had developed the app to assist with species identification and provide the most up-to-date information on fishing rules and regulations.

“The ‘Qld Fishing App’ is an easy to use tool for fishers to help identify their catch and find out size and possession limits,” McVeigh said.

“It also provides information on fishing rules including current closures and links to a number of maps such as fish habitat areas and regulated waters.

“It’s like having a Queensland fishing encyclopaedia in your pocket. This level of information will ensure everyone knows exactly what they can catch, where and when.

“Another handy feature is a personal angler diary, allowing fishers to photograph and record their catch, which can then be uploaded to Facebook.”

Other functions include being able to buy permits online, check weather and tide information, reporting any illegal fishing activities and subscribe to Fisheries catch eNewsletters.

Mr McVeigh said the app demonstrates the Queensland Government’s commitment to developing a one-stop-shop approach to information delivery.

The free Qld Fishing App is now ready for download through Google Play and Apple Store for IOS and Android systems.
