It has been a busy six months for compliance at the IFS with 1,418 angling licences and 188 whitebait licences checked from 1 July to 12 December 2014. A total of 38 people have been caught fishing without a licence.
• 32 Fisheries Infringement Notices issued for 42 offences
• 31 Infringement Notices endorsed as conditional cautions issued for 34 offences
• $9,520 in infringement notice fines

• 29 kilograms of whitebait seized
• one all-terrain vehicle seized

• eight vehicles searched
Further to the above there have been a couple of significant disqualifications
