How to use the aquaculture public register

When you first open the Public register you will be presented with a map of South Australia displaying a number of key regional areas. You will be provided with a number of search options to use the map. These include the ability to:

  • Enter a lease or licence number to zoom into a specific registration and site.
  • Jump to a locality from a list of key regional areas and have a map of that area displayed including lease and licence sites.
  • Draw a box around an area of interest on the map which displays a map of the selected area including lease and licence sites.
Once the sites are displayed on the map you can select a site. The application will return a list of leases and licences associated with the site.

You can then select a lease or licence from the list displayed and display data relevant to the lease, licence or application. Data displayed includes:

  • Registration ID
  • Registration type
  • Coordinates
  • Ownership information
  • Size of site
  • Date granted
  • Current expiry date
  • Registration status
  • Approved species
  • Approved farming method
  • Conditions
  • Environmental monitoring reports

You can print the information displayed.

A number of simple spatial functions have been included in the application. These include the ability to:

  • Zoom in and zoom out on the map.
  • Pan on the map (shift the map up, down, left or right).
  • Go back to the opening screen.

Basic layer management is also included. This allows you to filter the information presented on the map. Layers include:

  • Licence sites.
  • Application sites.

Aquaculture public register availability

The application will present registration data extracted from the in-house registration system at Primary Industries and Regions South Australia (PIRSA).

The extracted registration data will be refreshed after close of business on each working day. You are advised to check with PIRSA Aquaculture to determine the most recent update. The objective is for the application to reflect the actual registration information as the previous day.

The application has been developed to provide the public with 24-hour access to the registration data.  However, on occasions there may be issues beyond our control which impact on this availability.

Further information and help

As this is a web-based spatial application application you won't need to install any software on your computer.

The requirement to make lease and licence conditions available to the public is set out in Section 80 of the Aquaculture Act 2001.
