  • Simpler rules for pink snapper fishing in Shark Bay

    In Shark Bay’s inner gulfs, the 700 mm maximum size limit for pink snapper has been removed. 

    There is also no longer a requirement to land pink snapper in whole form, but Statewide filleting rules apply. 

    In Freycinet Estuary, the pink snapper tag lottery has been removed and replaced with a new possession limit of 5 kg of filleted fish or one day’s bag limit of whole fish or fish trunks. This applies to all finfish, not just pink snapper.

  • Improving rock lobster fishing

     There is no longer a maximum legal size limit for taking female western rock lobster.

    Two licensed fishers may now share a rock lobster pot.

    The daily bag limit for tropical rock lobster has been reduced to 4 as part of the overall bag limit of 8.
