Local Rules Why do we have Size Limits?

In Queensland, for many fish species there are limits on the size of fish that can be legally taken. There are minimum size limits and also some maximum size limits.

Size limits are typically based on biological research into each species’ reproductive cycles. Minimum size limits generally allow fish to spawn at least once and contribute to the population before they are taken.
However, some species spawn as they become larger which means a maximum size limit applies. For example, most barramundi begin their lives as males and later, as they grow larger, become females. A maximum size limit is applied to protect large females and to allow them to spawn.

Why do we have take and possession limits?

A take and possession limit is the number of fish that one person can legally take and keep.
These limits serve several purposes. They conserve heavily exploited species, conserve species that are susceptible to capture, share the catch more equally among anglers, reduce the illegal marketing of fish and convey the message of ethical and responsible behavior.
