Access to the Reef Line Fishery and Spanish Mackerel Fishery is reserved for Traditional Inhabitants. However, Sunset Licences allow non-traditional inhabitants to fish in these fisheries while there is capacity in the fishery to do so.
The Torres Strait Regional Authority (TSRA) may temporarily transfer a Sunset licence to a non-traditional inhabitant. Once the TSRA transfers a licence to a temporary licence holder, that licence holder cannot on-transfer the licence to another perron.
Fishing operations with Sunset licences must also have master fisherman’s licences.
