Fisheries Queensland's Stocked Impoundment Permit Scheme (SIPS) requires anglers who fish in certain Queensland dams to purchase a permit before they throw in a line.
In order to enhance the local recreational fishery, money raised by the SIPS is used to purchase native fish fingerlings to stock 32 impoundments or dams throughout Queensland.
Impoundments are 'put, grow and take' fisheries where most stocked species will not reproduce. This means the impoundments need to be stocked regularly. The money anglers pay for their Stocked Impoundment Permit (SIP) goes towards management of the SIPS and to stocking groups for purchasing native fish fingerlings.
