Possession limit: The possession limit is the maximum number of fish per person if you have fished for more than one day, which is double the daily pocket limit, unless otherwise indicated in the table. The ownership restriction also applies to the transportation and storage of fish, but does not apply to the purchase of fish from a registered fish recipient, such as a fish store. A catch limit is the maximum number of fish you can collect per person per day, where a property limit is the maximum number a person can have in their possession at any given time, i.e. in your freezer. From 1 August, reduced catch restrictions were introduced for recreational fishermen in New South Wales waters, reducing the daily number of dark flatheads that can be caught from 10 to five. September to April in rivers under freshwater reservoirs (catchment and release allowed from May to August). Year-round in freshwater reservoirs and rivers above freshwater reservoirs Sloan said changes to flathead rules will further enhance fishing and tourism opportunities in recreational fishing paradises such as Lake Macquarie and St. George`s Basin, which are well-known trophy flathead fisheries. and increase recreational fishing opportunities along our coast. Fishing in trout streams, artificial fly and bait streams and trout spawning grounds is prohibited from the late June long weekend until the beginning of the October long weekend.

Seasonal fishing restrictions may apply in other waters. Crayfish, other spiny except Fitzroy Falls Porcupine crabs The daily pocket limit for dark flatheads has also been reduced from 10 to 5 per person. However, the property line remains at 10 per person, allowing itinerant fishermen to store and freeze up to 10 fish for future consumption. Recreational fishers in New South Wales waters must be licensed, for a fee of $7 for three days, $14 for one month and $35 for one year. „A new maximum size limit and lower catch limit will encourage a more natural age structure (with more `older` fish), which should increase stock resilience over time,“ Professor Bell said. Reductions in flathead bag limits are intended to increase „the stock of large fish“ and provide „better fishing opportunities.“ (a) the Murrumbidgee River and its tributaries, other than Old Man Creek, from Hume Road at Gundagai to a line 100 m upstream from the spillway wall at Berembed Weir near Ganmain (b) the Murray River and its tributaries from 130 below the Hume Weir near Albury to the Newell Highway Bridge at Tocumwal; All other bodies of water in New South Wales are closed to Murray crabs. In the table above, the terms „Eastern Dams“ and „Eastern Rivers“ refer to bodies of water in the watersheds of eastern New South Wales. The dams listed are listed in the table below: The daily limit is the maximum number of fish caught per person per day. The property limit is the maximum number of fish per person if you have fished for more than one day, which is double the daily pocket limit, unless otherwise stated in the table. The ownership restriction also applies to the transportation and storage of fish, but does not apply to the purchase of fish from a registered fish recipient, such as a fish store.
Fish are measured from the tip of the snout to the tip of the tail. Crabs are measured from the back of the orbit to the middle of the back of the carapace. „There have been no changes to recreational fishing rules for Dusky Flathead since 2001. Maximum size limits for Dusky Flathead have been widely accepted in Queensland and Victoria, where their current restrictions have been in place since 2009 and 2012 respectively, and it is fantastic to see NSW adopt these new fishing rules that will benefit Dusky Flathead and ultimately all recreational fishermen in NSW. For more information: www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/recreational/fishing-rules-and-regs/dusky-flathead-and-lobster-faqs „This is an exciting development in recreational fishing for Rock Lobster in New South Wales, with plans to increase the combined pocket limit from two to three per person,“ Sloan said. Bag limit: The maximum number of fish or invertebrates per person per day. For fish or invertebrates not listed in the tables below, a maximum of 20 pieces of baggage per day applies. Protected and endangered species cannot be eliminated. Possession limit: The maximum number of fish a person is allowed to possess at any given time. This includes fish that are also stored elsewhere, for example in the fridge/freezer.
For the following species or groups of species: bass and Australian perch, bream and tarwhine, flathead species, tailor, luderrick, jack and blue swimming crab, the property line is twice as high as the daily pocket limit. Catch limit: The maximum number of fish per person per day. For recreational fishermen, the so-called slot limitation for flat mouth heads that can be caught and kept remains in place for fish between 30 and 75 cm in size. „Since 2001, the rules for recreational dark flathead fishing have not changed. The department also has a toll-free „Fishers Watch“ hotline (1800,043,546), which alerts fishing officials to illegal activities, such as those that took place in late May, when two men caught 57 tailors off Tathra Wharf, well above the limit of 10 per bag cutter. Both men face compliance measures. The full list of catch restrictions and how they apply to certain fish species is available on the NSW DPI website. Non-native fish species (except trout and salmon) For commercial fishers, the Total Allowable Commercial Catch (ACC) for Eastern Rock Lobster has been increased to the current level of 180 tonnes per year, through comprehensive data monitoring programs and prudent management as part of the Total Allowable Catch process to improve fisheries health. The deputy chief executive of the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries (DPI), Sean Sloan, said the department had responded to continued calls from the fishing community for rule changes for dark flatheads. Professor Johann Bell, chair of the Advisory Council for Recreational Fisheries, said the changes would provide better protection for large and breeding females.
* Only catching and releasing fish is allowed in the snow-covered catchment area The New South Wales Government has introduced new changes to the dark flathead slot and pocket limits to increase the larger fish stock and ultimately provide better fishing opportunities. Ongoing stock assessment models by DPI scientists show an increase in the frequency of eastern rock lobsters within the legal size range (104 mm to 180 mm) since the mid-1990s, when the stock was in a state of depletion. Elegant wrasse Ballina Angelfish Muzzle cod Black cod Queensland giant groper Weedy Sea dragon (common) Eastern Blue Devil Autumn nurse shark Grey nurse shark Great white shark Green sawfish „Maximum size limits for dark flatheads have been widely accepted in Queensland and Victoria, where their current limits have been in place since 2009 and 2009, respectively. 2012.“ „The changes to the catch limit for rock lobster are the result of effective research and management controls in New South Wales over the past few decades, with recreational and commercial fishers helping to ensure that the eastern rock lobster population recovers to healthy levels. NSW DPI – Fisheries says these changes will help increase the stock of large, dark flatheads and ultimately provide better fishing opportunities for recreational fishermen for this very popular species in the future. „Duskies“ caught outside of these size restrictions must be turned over to make the species „future-proof“, as larger females do not become infertile with age and can spawn up to five times a year, producing 700 eggs per gram of body weight.
