West Australian anglers who fish from a boat anywhere in the Sate, including those on charter boats will need a $30.00 licence as from October 2009.2%20feet%20at%20rear%20of%20boat%20fishing%20rod

The licence will apply to any form of fishing where a boat is used.  There is also an additional licence for anglers who wish to target demersal scale fish such as dhufish, at a cost of $20.00 a day, $60.00 a fortnight or $150.00 annually.

Much of the revenue raised from the new licensing system will be used on researching ways to replenish dwindling fish stocks.

People fishing from beaches or jetties will not need a licence except where existing licences apply.

“There has also been another shark sighting this morning at Strickland Bay on Rottnest Island, where warning signs were erected several days ago after sightings made during the week.”
