PLEASE read up on the newest fisheries rules below
One of the more significant changes to us is the new Dhufish limit. Its 1 Dhufish per diver or 2 per boat (If there are 2 or more persons on the boat).
Also the addition of the “High Risk Demersal” category of 2 fish ONLY .This category includes spearo favourites Baldchin Grouper, Breaksea Cod, Parrot fish, Dhufish and Pink Snapper to name a few. In simple terms you (the Spearfisherman) may only capture 2 high risk demersal species in total, ie 1 Baldchin and 1 Pink Snapper.
It DOES NOT MEAN you can have 2 Baldchin, 2 Pink Snapper, 2 Breaksea Cod and 2 Parrotfish in your possession.… Read more
