Catch Limits and Closed Seasons
For each species of fish not listed in this guide, a bag/possession limit of 5 applies.
Bag limit: The maximum number of a particular type of fish that a person may take on any one day.
Possession limit: The maximum number of a particular type of fish that a person may possess at any time while in, on or next to Victorian waters. However, for abalone, possession limits apply in all parts of Victoria.
i.e. David is holidaying at a caravan park for the long weekend. He has 12 bream in his possession in his caravan from fishing for three days. David can have more than the possession limit for bream (which is 10), because he can demonstrate that he has been in residence at the caravan park for several days.
(Ie. Abalone, mussel, oysters, scallop, squid, octopus,
cuttlefish, sandworm, sea urchins)
