This will provide a summary of the contact points and procedures for reporting illegal fishing activities in our local waters:

Recommended Procedures

1) Do your best to take a picture of the offending vessel showing the vessel registration (zoom)
2) Do your best to take a wide angle picture so that it's easier to see the vessels location
3) Do your best to capture the illegal activity
4) If your phone support video this tends to be better
5) When calling in the report try and give a precise location and use land marks as references.
6) Indicate the nature of the suspected illegal fishing activity.

Above all, stay safe. Don't jeopardise your personal safety when attempting to get this information.
