Recreational fishing in Yawuru Nagulagun/Roebuck Bay Marine Park

​The newly created Yawuru Nagulagun/Roebuck Bay Marine Park is located directly south of the town of Broome, extending along the coast from Gantheaume Point in the north to Cape Villaret in the south.

The Yawuru Nagulagun/Roebuck Bay Marine Park consists of two zone types: special purpose (cultural heritage) zones and special purpose (recreation and conservation) zones.

The joint management plan for the Yawuru Nagulagun/Roebuck Bay Marine Park has been finalised, and includes detailed information on the zones and permitted fishing activities.

Recreational fishing will be permitted to continue throughout the marine park in accordance with Statewide recreational fishing rules. You can become familiar with the new zones by exploring the interactive map below.

The key species likely to be found in the waters of Yawuru Nagulagun/Roebuck Bay Marine Park include barramundithreadfin, black jewfish, triple tail, emperors and cods.
