Size LimitsMinimum (and sometimes maximum) size limits are used to ensure that enough fish reach breeding size and have the opportunity to reproduce. In many cases, this means that the minimum size limit is set to allow all fish to breed at least once before they are able to be kept by fishers. Return all undersized fish to the water. It is an offence to possess undersize fish even if they are no longer alive.
Below is a summary of the size limits for recreational fish species. For more information on individual species see the Fish Facts pages of this site.
