EASTER is traditionally a time for families to go camping and fishing.
But the NSW Department of Primary Industries has issued a reminder for people to enjoy their activity safely and responsibly.
DPI acting director fisheries compliance, Tony ndrews, said fisheries officers will be doing regular patrols across the state’s waterways to ensure people are complying with recreational fishing rules.
“Fisheries officers will be targeting popular coastal areas as well as key inland fishing spots,” Mr Andrews said.
“All fishers must hold and carry with them a current NSW recreational fishing licence, and must also be aware of the current bag and size limits in place.
“Anyone found without a licence faces a $200 on the spot fine and additionally a penalty of $75 can apply if they do not have the licence in their immediate possession.”
He said licence fees are $7 for three days, $14 a month, $35 one year and $85 for three years.
Details of bag and size limits can be found in the 2014 NSW Recreational Fishing Guides available on the DPI website dpi.nsw.gov419论坛/fisheries.
Anyone who suspects illegal fishing can report it to the fishers phoneline on 1800 043 536.
