Landing and vessel codes for giving prior notices and transhipment notices

Landing codes

View the list of landing codes (including latitudes and longitudes) for places that quota catch is commonly landed.

You can use a code rather than entering the latitude and longitude for a landing location or for a transhipment notice where you have transferred your fish to a transport vessel. In the legislation, the code is called the 'prescribed numerical code for a place'.

If you regularly land at a location that is not listed here, or if the details of the place (especially the latitude and longitude) are incomplete or incorrect, please contact the Quota Monitoring Unit on (07) 3087 8802 immediately. If you wish to unload at a private residence, you must contact Fisheries Queensland's Licensing Unit on (07) 3087 8811 for approval.

Please note:

  • landing facilities may carry restrictions for commercial fishing vessels under the Transport Infrastructure (Public Marine Facilities) Regulation 2011. Please make sure you are familiar with this regulation before landing commercial fishing vessels in Queensland.
  • you should contact the manager of the facility to see if approval is required before using the facility to unload product.
