Recreational FishingMore than one in four Tasmanians fish in saltwater each year. Tasmanians have access to a wide range of popular recreational species such as flathead, Australian salmon, bream, tuna, rock lobster and scallops using a variety of fishing gear including rod and line, nets and pots. Learn how to fish responsibly by following basic fishing rules such as size, bag and possession limits.
