Reminder: Recreational Fishing for Sea Bass 1st March to 30th November

Between 1st March and 30th November (inclusive) a recreational fisher can retain two size (42cm or larger) European seabass per day. No European seabass can be taken if caught by fixed nets. These rules apply if you are fishing from a boat or from the shore. Any additional Euoprean seabass caught must be returned immediately. Bass must be handled carefully to ensure a high survival rate of released fish. Anglers are advised to carry forceps or long-nosed pliers to assist removal of hooks and to support fish in the water until they are able to swim away.
