Extraterritorial operation of Act

    (1)     If—

        (a)     a person does, or omits to do, an act or thing outside, or partly outside, Victoria, which would contravene a provision of this Act; and

        (b)     there is a real and substantial link between doing, or omitting to do, the act or thing and Victoria—

that provision applies to the act or thing or the omission as if it had been done, or omitted to be done, wholly within Victoria.

    (2)     Without limiting the generality of subsection (1), there is a real and substantial link with Victoria for the purposes of that subsection if—

        (a)     the conduct relates to a thing or act done or omitted to be done by the person when carrying out fishing activities under a fishery licence held, or purported to be held, by that person; or

        (b)     the conduct relates to the taking of fish from Victorian waters by the person.

    (3)     In this section a reference to a contravention of a provision of this Act is to be read as including a reference to the commission of an associated offence.
