Which fishing regulations apply to me?
There are a number of regulations that apply to recreational and commercial fishers in the Southern IFC District. Some regulations apply to certain gear types, whereas others apply to specific areas or species. Although recreational fishers fishing for leisure or their own consumption are not currently required to obtain a permit to fish, they must follow Southern IFCA Byelaws regarding closed areas, minimum sizes, gear restrictions etc.
