It’s essential that the Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA) can make contact with concession holders, skippers and masters of Commonwealth fishing vessels quickly and easily.

AFMA needs to contact relevant people and vessels at sea for fisheries management notifications and fisheries compliance issues that may arise.

AFMAs National Compliance team is asking operators to ensure they maintain contact details for both the vessel and someone who is shore-based, like the fleet manager or a family member.

Operators can check and confirm their details by contacting AFMA licensing on 1300 723 621 or by emailing licensing [at] afma.gov.au.

REMINDER: It is condition that all fishing concessions contact details are accurate.
