The official app from NSW Department of Primary Industries provides you with the essential information you need to fish recreationally in NSW.
The app includes; bag and size limits, closed seasons and fishing gear rules. It provides maps to show your nearest FADs, artificial reefs, Recreational Fishing Areas and where Marine Park zones are. It also includes downloadable guides including; spearfishing, fishing safely, trout fishing, regional fishing information and more. Contact DPI for illegal fishing, fish kills, pest species etc as well as local Fisheries Offices. You can view our Facebook newsfeed and pay your recreational fishing licence fee using the app.
Changes to some marine park zones as part of ocean beaches and headlands reforms. Additional marine protected areas are now displayed, including Intertidal Protected Areas and Commonwealth Marine Parks. Also an iOS update fix has been applied to ensure all detailed rules are correctly displayed for all listed fish species.

A simple way to make it more useful
It’s a useful app but would be even better if it had a field where we could store our
fishing licence number so we can find it easily when fisheries officers come calling. It would be especially useful for fishing on Sydney Harbour where they are very... diligent.
And it would be extra awesome if you could scan the fish with your camera and have the app tell you what species it is and any limits that apply.
Great idea but doesn't work. Crashes as soon as it is open despite multiple installs. Running latest IOS and iPhone 6.
When opening the app a loading symbol appears then the app closes every time, unusable.
