Public Register availability

The Public Register presents data extracted from internal business systems at the Department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA).

The data will be refreshed after close of business on each working day. You are advised to check with PIRSA Fisheries and Aquaculture if there is any doubt with information currency. The Public Register should reflect the authoritative registration information as at close of business on the previous business day.
