Amendment to Bass restrictions
Restrictions on recreational fishing for bass have been amended as follows:
For recreational fishers, from the 1st October until the 31st December 2018, one bass may be retained per person per day. Any additional bass must be returned immediately to the sea.
In addition, the minimum conservation reference size of 42cm applies – any bass smaller than this must be returned immediately to the sea.
