The Queensland Government Vessel Tracking Rebate Scheme offsets the costs commercial fishers incur to purchase and have approved vessel tracking units installed on their commercial fishing boats.

The Queensland Sustainable Fisheries Strategy 2017 – 2027 outlines a ten-year reform agenda for the sustainable management of Queensland fisheries. 

As part of this strategy, vessel tracking capability will be required on all commercial fishing boats by 2020, with a priority to install units on net, line and crab commercial fishing boats by 1 January 2019. 

Costs eligible for the rebate include those for the purchase and installation of approved vessel tracking units. View the frequently asked questions or guidelines (PDF, 182KB) for more details.
