Subsequent to our previous BLOG about the lack of clarity pertaining to the dates on which fishing right applications must be submitted, it has emerged that the Department of Fisheries quietly gazetted a notice on 22 August 2013 confirming that applications for fishing rights must be handed in between 23 September 2013 and 4 October 2013.
It is vitally important to note that your application form must be handed in at the same venue from which you collected it. If you hand it in at another venue, it will be refused.
Secondly, you must hand in your form on specific dates depending on where you live along the coast. For the exact dates and venues for the submission of forms, please contact Feike for a copy of the gazette.
