Tips for using fishing maps

Open the Maps menu and zoom into your fishing area using the touchscreen. Touch on the red area restriction to see a description of the boundaries. On iOS devices, scroll to see gear and species restrictions, or on Android devices, select 'See Restrictions'.

The Tas Fish Guide app will cache map data for areas previously viewed by you on your device. To access map data when fishing in areas with no reception, view them when you have coverage, prior to going fishing. Area restrictions will be visible regardless of whether you have reception.

Maps are provided by the Land Information System Tasmania, NRE Tas.

Refer to the Living Marine Resources Management Act 1995 and the Inland Fisheries Act 1995 and legislation made under those Acts for specific boundary descriptions. The maps in this application should not be used for navigation purposes.
