This booklet provides detailed, easy-to-understand information on Aboriginal harvesting rights — the Aboriginal right to fish, hunt, and trap, and gather plants, fungi, and timber. It explains the different regulations and who they apply to, how to reduce your chances of being charged with illegal harvesting, and what your options are if you’re charged. Comes with a checklist of things to confirm before you go harvesting and what to bring with you.
