Recreational fishing on Aboriginal land

Daly River

Recreational and commercial fishers do not need permits to access waters in the Daly River and Daly River mouth regions. 

Possession limits apply and the area is closed between 1 October and 31 January. 

The Daly River mouth region consists of the coastline to the boundary of Mabaluk land within the Daly River/Port Keats Aboriginal Land Trust. 

Fishing tour operators also have access to intertidal waters in the Daly River mouth region. 

You must respect the cultural importance of these waters to the Malak Malak people.
