At the risk of being overly political...
(a) under a warrant issued under section 187; or
I wouldn't doubt that some officers are accredited (?) JPs. The police did it and probably still do to expedite warrants.

(b) with the consent of the occupier of the premises; or
If they knock on your door and ask to look most people wouldn't refuse, any refusal would be grounds for a warrant I suspect.

(c) if the fisheries officer —
(i) suspects on reasonable grounds that a person has committed an offence against this Act; and
(ii) has pursued the person without interruption from the place, or near the place, where the offence was suspected to have been committed to the premises.

If the suspected offence was an individual growing wild caught stock at home, then the premises are the place where the offence was suspected to have been committed.

All it takes is a nosy neighbour to make a complaint of their crazy suspicions to get a visit I think.

Nothing to hide, nothing to fear. (Until they notice your 200 SPs and you realise that the printing on your receipt has faded and can't be read...).
I doubt anyone has anything to fear but if you'd denied them permission to enter they'd sure be sus on you.

I got a visit for different reasons rather than mentioned and I had done nothing wrong but I think its worth outlining that they are watching and you can get a visit if they have suspicions.

Its debatable whether I had done anything wrong but I still got a visit with police attending as well. Plus the advice they gave me on what I was and was not allowed to do was not consistent with the Meat Act or the rules governing the hunting of game on public and private land.

In the US we call them Game Wardens. They have more authority than any other legal branch out there. They can enter and search property or vehicles without warrant or concent. They can sieze any weapons, game, and vehicles used if they deem a crime has been committed. I would definately keep any reciepts from purchased goods to help in the event they knock on the door.

I think you will find that SA laws regarding warrants are simply bodgy. :lol:

I concur with Bodgy but some things that are bodgy could be dodgy!

Noo definitely bodgy. :lol:

A lawyers client described a SA warrant as " “some *frack* bus ticket that I could have typed up on the computer myself”; this allows in SA a police officer, at any time of the day or night, to enter into, break open and search any house, building, premises or place”. ie made up from whatever you have lying around but unfortunately functional. ( it doesn't have to be sworn, give cause or even be applicable to a particular address :)

Sleepe, what you are referring to in South Australia is called a General Search Warrant, and is issued to Detectives in SA. You are correct, it doenst have to be sworn before a JP or magistrate, however it can only be used in certain circumstances (ie. Suspicion that an indictable offence (jail term attached) has/ is/ is about to be committed). The warrant holder has to justify its use before a committee made of senior officers of police when it has been used. Its the only state in Australia that has general search warrants and their use is very tighty scrutinised by Police, the legal assoc. and the judiciary.

Its an interesting point the OP raised about possession limits. The fisheries laws in each state differ (common theme, different wordings in some instances), so it would be best for people to check with their relevant state fisheries agencies.

For the record, and in the name of transparency, i am a senior investigator with Commonwealth Fisheries (AFMA), and from my understanding the possession limits are in place to restrict the amount of wild caught fish that people can possess at any one time. That said, there is nowhere that i can find in Comlaw that specified 'wild caught'. I dont think the legislators had AP in mind when the laws were drafted.

It would be a case of CYA (cover your bum), keep receipts of purchases (i scan all mine to the computer and keep the hard copies, as they fade), as well as the date, time and place of purchase so that it can be verified if ever the question is asked (for me, its tax stuff, but no different from any other need to keep receipts).
