This move see us co-located with a number of other State Government departments in the city centre.  

As part of the move, we have permanently closed our Perth licensing counter.

However, you can still apply for​ or renew your recreational or commercial fishing licence in the following ways: 

  • ​​Online - you can apply for and renew all fishing licences online. This is the quickest way to receive your licence.
  • At one of our other licensing offices.

For large commercial fishing licence transactions, you can still meet with one of our senior licencing officers at our new premises, but you need to call ahead to make an advance appointment​. (Please note: we can no longer accept cash for this kind of transaction, but are now equipped with mobile payment systems). You can now reach us on 6551 4444.
