Lobster licence

 Does anyone know if you need a rfbl and a lobster licence if diving for Crays from the boat, or will the lobster licence suffice if no fin fish are taken?

 I see that Rob suggest that just the cray license is enough when diving from a boat but I think any activity done from a boat requires a BFL as I was told that even to go by boat to the sand banks in Mandurah the fisheirs can book you.for the sack of a call dont give the government any more money to wast

 Even fisheries, with their weird and bizarre ways, wouldn't stick you for two licences to do the same thing.

Certainly worth a call to Fisheries if ever in doubt. 

I call at least once a year to confirm something!

" Taking part in a fishing activity for which you already hold a current licence, such as rock lobster or abalone fishing. For example, if you have a licence to fish for rock lobster and that is the only fishing activity taking place on the boat, you don’t need an RFBL."

 Was going to suggest looking on the website first but its hard to word without sounding like a smarty pants 

If nothing else to just be familiar with the layout.

Does anyone else on Farcebook have to take a deep breath and look away when someone posts "whats the phone number for {enter global multinational or Gov dept here}"??
