Re: whitebaiting 2011


In Tasmania they have a maximum catch of 2kg a day, with 10kg for a season. Whitebait can not be sold, and whitebaiters and their nets need a license. They also ban the use of screens and I think traps with a nets mouth with a circumference no larger then 120cm. Makes our regulations seem very generous.

Plus the rivers are subject to a schedule of annual rotations of open and closed waters
