Price increase proposed for Victorian fishing licence

FISHERIES Victoria is now consulting the community on proposed changes to the Recreational Fishery Licence (RFL).
The proposed changes are scheduled to take effect from 1st July 2016 and relate to:

  • price increases for RFLs
  • discounts for 1 year and 3 year RFLs purchased online
  • offences and penalties associated with the administration and issuing of RFLs by authorised persons.

All licence revenue will continue to be paid into the RFL Trust Account to fund projects that improve recreational fishing opportunities.

The last increase in the price of a RFL was in 2008.

Licences purchased prior to 1 July 2016 will be valid until they expire.

The Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) is available for public comment until 19 April 2016 and is available on the Fisheries Victoria website.
