Can you please specify what documents we need to take to apply for the permit? And are there any fees?

Went there today.
You don't need anything at least I was not asked for anything. I took fishing booklet, the valletta reg and I'd card.
All I did was fill in an application form and handed it to the messenger. Was not given an acknowledgement....not good.
By the way I was told by same that one can register online so those who have not been check that out and maybe you save yourselves a drive and a zoo walk...

@ toxictuna from where did you get the 17ft limit? of course, cause your boat is over 17ft Wink that's exactly how things are done at the fisheries.  So because my boat is just 14ft I'm out of this if it was up to you to decide, awesome.

Sorry mate, ( oops thank god i wrote a disclaimer stating i am no expert)i never imagined any one with a fourteen footer goes for bft....but now that i think about it i did see some one trying to last yr. well than say larger than 10 ft?  The same logic applies.

Give me one, just one good reason why the authorities should provide a higher  BFT quota when last year, of all the BFT permits issued, only one, yes one BFT catch was registered.  So, with one BFT caught last year weighing 47.2kgs,  and registered, 500kgs should be enough..


because i did not manage to apply like many others who did not know the applications where open! So i did not catch any last year

Got a call this morning as I didnt put down the district..........which as I was told is from where I am going out to fish. So I said I either launch in Bugibba or Bbugia. Does it make sense if you trailer your boat then you can launch from wherever you like. I dont know there has to be a change in mentality otherwise we will never make progess.  To report a fish I have to go to Marfa she said, so from Bugibba I have go to Marfa.

As this stage, take it as a registration of intent. The finer details still need to be ironed out as many things don't make sense.

If you are a trailered boat, I would put down "Trailer" as district.
