Fisheries New Zealand is consulting on proposals to amend the amateur regulations so that a combined daily bag limit applies to all finfish species unless specifically excluded. There are three options proposed.
These are: Retain the current daily bag limit settings; include all finfish species, not currently subject to a daily bag limit, in the combined daily bag limit; or include all finfish species, including those with additional individual species limits, in the combined daily bag limit. The closing date for submissions is November 18.
