NSW Fishing License price increase.
« on: July 23, 2013, 11:18:21 AM »
The cost of dropping a line in will increase from September 1, with the price of a fishing licence going up, Department of Primary Industries Director Recreational and Indigenous Fisheries Peter Turnell said.
“The recreational fishing fee structure has not been revised since 2005, and this small increase is in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI),” Mr Turnell said.
“Recreational fishing in NSW has been greatly improved through the programs that have been rolled out as a result of the contribution made by anglers through the recreational fishing fee.
“The recreational fishing fee Trusts have funded numerous additional projects and ongoing programs that have seen both the inland and saltwater recreational fishing experience enhanced.
 “The project's increase in cost is in line with CPI, and it is now time to make the necessary adjustment to the fee so we can continue improving recreational fishing in NSW.”

The changes to the fees include:
 · 3 day fee increase from $6 to $7;
 · 1 month from $12 to $14;
 · 1 year from $30 to $35; and the
 · 3 year fee increase from $75 to $85.

 This is the first increase to the recreational fishing fee in 8 years.


I fish because the little voices in my head tell me to.
