Victoria boasts a variety of fish and seafood whether you buy it from a fishmonger, eat it at a restaurant or catch it yourself.
Our fisheries are sustainably managed so everyone can enjoy fish now and into the future.
You can do your bit by understanding catch limits, licensing and permitted equipment. Our free Recreational Fishing Guide outlines all the detail and is available as a smartphone app too.
You can also ring our 24 hour illegal fishing reporting line 13FISH (133474) if you see or suspect illegal fishing.
Revised bag and size limits now apply in Victorian lakes and rivers.
