Government of Western Australia - Department of Fisheries


​Any individual using Fish Eye to transact online on behalf of a fisheries business licence/certificate holder must be registered and nominated into an online user role by the relevant business licence holder(s).

Fisheries business licence holders include Managed Fishery Licence Holders (MFLs), Registered Receiver Certificate Holders (RRCs), or Processor Licence Holders (PROLs). These can also be referred to as Authorisation or Certificate holders.

The online user roles will determine the level of access each user is entitled to. If you are a single owner licence holder and wish to use Fish Eye, you will need to nominate yourself into the appropriate role(s).

Nominated users will have access to confidential catch and entitlement information linked to the MFL, RRC or PROL that has authorised the nomination. Depending on the role they have been nominated to, they will also be able to submit and amend Trip Returns (including Pre-Fishing, Pre-Landing and Post-landing nomination forms, and Consignment Records) and authorise Masters on behalf of the fisheries business licence holder. They will also be able to view your transaction history.

Fish Eye Online Services Terms and Conditions

How to nominate

To nominate a person, you need to complete the Nomination form. This needs to be authorised with the signature of every person named on the business licence/certificate. You will need to complete a separate form for each individual you are nominating, but you can select more than one role for each person you nominate if required.

It is important that you find out more about the different online user roles before making any nominations.

Nominating Masters

If you are nominated into the role of MFL Online Operator, you will be able to nominate and revoke Masters online, on behalf of the MFL Holder. Masters do not need to be registered with Fish Eye unless they wish to use the online services or CatchER. If you use the existing paper Catch Disposal Record (CDR) and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system, you will also need to nominate your Masters using IVR.
