You can still go Fishing

A Message from the DPI Fisheries Team

Fishing & COVID-19

We hope you are keeping well and safe during these challenging times. In early April NSW Police advised that recreational fishing is permitted, as long as people follow all other advice in relation to social distancing and gatherings of two or more people. It is vital you follow NSW Health guidelines around social distancing. Detailed advice on social distancing is available at

As well as strictly following social distancing guidelines, all fisheries rules and regulations continue to apply in NSW, including bag and size limits. Please work with our fisheries officers to ensure they can carry out their duties while keeping everyone as safe as possible.

Stay tuned to the NSW DPI Fisheries Facebook page for more updates.

Stay safe!

Apparently, sailing is considered to be exercise and is permitted, but staying on your boat overnight isn't. T
