Marron recreational fishing

The marron fishery is unique because it is purely for recreational fishers.

To keep the fishery sustainable, we manage fishing through size, bag and possession limits, among other measures. There are also seasonal and area closures and restrictions on the type of fishing gear used. A licence is required when fishing for marron.

Information on fishing rules for marron including size and bag limits can be found online or in our Recreational fishing for marron guide.​​​​
