NSW DPI is undertaking community consultation on proposed changes to recreational fishing rules for Eastern Rock Lobster and Dusky Flathead.

The proposed changes for recreational fishers are:

  • Eastern Rock Lobster - increase in bag limit from two to three per person.
  • Dusky Flathead - introduction of a slot limit of 36 cm - 70 cm (previously only one over 70 cm) and reduction of bag limit from 10 to five per person.

The Recreational Fishing NSW Advisory Council, which provides advice to the Minister for Agriculture and Western NSW on recreational fishing matters, developed these proposals and supported community consultation being undertaken.

We are encouraging all recreational fishers and the community to have their say.

Please read the short consultation paper on the proposed changes prior to completing the online submission form.

Submissions close 26 November 2021.
