Fishing Regulations 2

In the previous issue of the Wild News, we looked at the different types of recreational fishing permits. In this issue we will look at regulations specific to the recreational permit for angling.

The holder of a permit for recreational angling is not allowed to catch, land, disturb or control any of the following species: Basking Shark, Brindle Bass, Coelacanth, Great White Shark, Natal Wrasse, Pipefish, Seahorses, Potato Bass, Red Steenbras (Copper Steenbras), Sawfish, Seventy-Four, or Whale Shark.
Bag limits for fish has been established, and the permit holder must ensure not to exceed the prescribed bag limit per species. It is important to remember that there is a cumulative bag limit of 10 fish per angler, irrespective of the species, however, this bag limit does not apply to species with no bag limit like Maasbanker and Wolf herring, and also does not apply to fish that has a bag limit exceeding 10 like Mullet.
There is a closed season for Shad from 1 October to 30 November of any year. There is also a closed season for Galjoen from 15 October to the last day of February of the following year, and a closed season for Chokka (Squid) from
12 noon on 19 October to 12 noon on 23 November in any year.
A complete list of minimum sizes for each species, as well as bag limits and rules and regulation can be obtained from The Office of the Wild News.
In our next issue we will look at more of the legal aspects regarding recreational fishing.
