Do you enjoy fishing or crabbing along our region’s coastline but are unsure of all the rules, regulations, area closures and size and bag limits?
All the latest information on South Australian recreational fishing is now easier to access with a new free app.
The ‘SA Recreational Fishing Guide’ app can be downloaded on iPhone or Android and is a one stop shop of information on smartphones or tablets.
Fishers are able to report suspicious or illegal fishing activity to Fishwatch, as well as shark sightings and catch reports on specific species through the app. Subscribers will also be able to receive direct alerts on immediate rule changes, or timely reminders such as seasonal closures or opening dates.
Other features include up to date rules for fishing in South Australia from PIRSA, full colour fish illustrations, fishing gear illustrations and descriptions, aquatic reserves and area restrictions, latest marine weather and warnings, and a personal Angler Diary that enables people to photo record catches and list their favourite fishing spots.
