With the implementation of a comprehensive management plan in 1998, there are specific licences for access to Tasmanian scalefish resources, with corresponding gear limitations.

Other controls in the fishery include minimum size limits for key species, mesh size limits, possession limits for some species and net length regulations for some gears. Many areas are closed for fishing.

Further information can be found on the Scalefish Fishery page on the Department of Primary Industries and Water web site at
