1. Overview

You need a Category A (10 metres or under) fishing vessel licence if you want to catch and sell sea fish, unless you’re exempt.

Check the licence you need if your vessel is longer than 10 metres.

Follow these steps to get a Category A (10 metres or under) fishing vessel licence:

  1. Register your vessel - you must do this before you can get a licence.

  2. Get a licence entitlement - you’ll need this to get a licence.

  3. Apply for your licence.

You must carry your licence on board your vessel at all times.
