Changes to some regional office services

​While front counter services are no longer available at our Karratha, Exmouth, Denham and Jurien Bay offices, don’t worry – renewing or obtaining your fishing licences is quick and easy using DoTDirect, and you can access the site at a time convenient to you.

Although our fisheries compliance officers still operate out of these offices and continue to monitor and patrol our fish resources, front counter services are no longer available from these sites.

Community Resource Centres (CRCs) in Jurien Bay and Shark Bay have come on board to provide some recreational licensing services and hard copies of our recreational fishing guides, which are also available from our website as digital copies.

To renew your fishing from a boat, rock lobster, abalone, netting, marron or freshwater angling licence, visit DoTDirect online, or if you are in the area, visit the Jurien Bay or Shark Bay CRCs, where staff will be able to help.

The Jurien Bay CRC, open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, is located at 67 Bashford Street. Phone 9652 2425 or email The Shark Bay CRC is located at 10 Denham Road and is open Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm. Phone 9948 1787 or email
