Help us make it better

Submit your fish photos via the ‘Which fish is this?’ or the ‘My fish photo’ features in the app to help us ‘train’ the app, which uses artificial intelligence to identify common fish species.

If you have some ideas about how we can make the app easier to us, let us know via the ‘Contact Fisheries’ form in the app.

If you’d like to help us develop and test new features and functions, email QLDrecfishingapp.support@daf.qld.gov.au or call us on 13 25 23.
