    I donít think it matters as long as it can be read.

    Some guys carved their details into the posts for the pots and they were confiscated because the inspector did not see them, so I would opt for a tag that stands out.

    I just browsed the rules and it states the tag must be attached to the rope if it is attached to a fixed object.

    I guess you need to check each states rules. In qld you only need your name on the float or tag if attached to a fixed object (tree. Jetty)but name address on the et itself. Qld got is looking at changing the rules on the weight of pots and eliminate all those cheap ones made from thin rings, this will help eliminate a large percentage of ghost (or supposedly stolen)pots. They should go further and include a weight at least 1m below the float so that will reduce the number of lines cut by passing boats.

    In qld you must have, Name on the Float, Or the end of the rope attaching it to an object (ie a tree Rock ETC)
    Then you must have name and address on the pot itself that is visible.

    I think anywhere on the pot will be fine, mine are all on the top to stop them getting damaged if the pot is sitting on a rock or something. See them as soon as you pull the pot up as well.

    If the proposed Qld crab pot rules come in on July 1st. you'll also have to supply your DNA, hair follicle, name of dog, wife's maiden name and your photograph!

    We're slowly but surely losing the battle up here with the Greens and Labor!
