New limits surrounding Blue Swimmer Crabs

Recreational fishers are being reminded

New limits surrounding Blue Swimmer Crabs http://www.pir.sa.gov.au

Recreational fishers are being reminded of new limits surrounding Blue Swimmer Crabs as the crabbing season gets underway.

The call comes as PIRSA Fisheries Officers detect high levels of non-compliance at popular crabbing spots throughout last year, issuing over 135 expiations and written cautions during crabbing months last year.

Under the new limitations, all female crabs carrying eggs are protected and must be returned to the water.
