  1. Nice Video however, I think it's worth mentioning that the FWC has made this registration MANDATORY!!! People fishing for any of the 10 species on there list must be registered by 1 April 2015.  According to the FWC's frequently ask questions; it is up to the discretion of the FWC Officer of what happens to you when boarded and are unable to produce evidence that you have met this now annual requirement.
