All fishers in quota managed fisheries are required to report quota usage via FisherMobile. There will be no exceptions made. Training sessions for fishers will be provided at key coastal locations before 1 December and ongoing support services to assist fishers transition to this new reporting requirement will be available.
FisherMobile is a secure mobile App that has been developed to enable the reporting of commercial fishing activity information by authorised fishers using mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets/iPads.

In future, FisherMobile will also provide the following additional functionality to authorised fishers:
A feature of the FisherMobile App is that it has been personalised to retrieve and display information that is relevant to the logged in user. For example, catch and effort reports will only show that individual's relevant fishing businesses and respective endorsements for the selected fishing date, making it user friendly and easy to use. Refer to the user guides to learn more about how FisherMobile works.
FisherMobile utilises device independent technology.
FisherMobile has been purposely built to support occasional connected use (i.e. when internet access is restricted by a lack of coverage). For example, users can create a report whilst connected to the internet then move to an area of no internet coverage without losing any pending reports. Activity logs and unsubmitted pending reports are stored on the users device for later submission, with real time updates enabled once connectivity is re-established. FisherMobile users are not able to create or submit a report without internet connection.
A compatible mobile device is required in connection with any use of this service. Compatible mobile devices include iPhone, iPad (iOS 5.0+) and Android Phone/Tablet (4+) and the native browsers found on these devices. Third party browsers (downloaded) other than Chrome and Safari are not supported.
In order to use FisherMobile, you will need to register - criteria for registration applies.
Fisher Mobile user guides and video demonstrations have been developed to assist you with using FisherMobile services. We are currently preparing more user resources for the mobile app and these will be uploaded to this site over the coming months as they become available.
