    New app helps fishers abide by Queensland’s fishing rules

    The Fisheries Queensland smart phone app has proved a hit with recreational fishers with more than 5000 downloads recorded since its launch last month. The initial uptake of the app is great news and will lead to reduced confusion over fishing rules and improved fisheries compliance.

    The ‘Qld Fishing’ app was developed to provide fishers in Queensland with easy to access and up-to-date information on recreational fishing rules and regulations. It’s like an encyclopaedia of fishing rules in your pocket – the app is available anytime and anywhere.

    The app features images of approximately 400 fish species with their description and details of the size and possession limits and closed seasons that apply. Other functionality includes access to weather and tide information, a personal Angler Diary where you can take a photo of your catch and upload it to Facebook, an illegal fishing activities report form, maps showing stocked impoundments and closure areas, plus much more.

    The plan is for this app to be a one-stop-shop for all fishing and boating rules that apply throughout Queensland. The initial release of the app focuses on information relating to recreational fishing rules, however future updates will include information on boating safety rules and marine park zonings.

    We want to make things as simple as possible to help fishing and boating enthusiasts to comply with the rules and thereby protect Queensland’s valuable fishing resources for future generations.

    The ‘Qld Fishing’ app is available for free download from Apple and Google app stores. A Windows version will be available soon.

    For more information on Queensland’s fishing rules, visit, call 13 25 23 or download the free ‘Qld Fishing’ app from Apple and Google app stores.

    The app is very slow to use

    If you caught something and needed to ID it, by the time you actually bring it up on the screen the fish would be dead.
    I like the idea and the descriptions are good but it really needs to be sped up some how.

    It does give an option to provide feedback in the app. I suggest everyone who has not done so should let them know about this issue.
