Important information for all NT Recreational Fishers – Updated June 5, 2020


AFANT reminds all fishers that the health of the community must come first and social distancing must be maintained while fishing with people you don not live with.  Remember, if your land based fishing spot, boat ramp or campground is busy…. move on.

If you are going fishing, you need to do the right thing and protect all Territorians by following these rules:

  • Boat fishing with friends & family, ensuring 1.5m of social distancing
  • Land based fishing with friends & family, ensuring 1.5m of social distancing
  • Camping in open NT Parks (check website)
