Crayfish - reminder of restrictions and penalties

We received a call on Monday morning from Ashley, who attended the recent Seafood and Crayfish Festival in Paternoster.

He says that local fishermen were openly selling crayfish and so they decided to buy some to take home and prepare.

What took them by surprise was a roadblock, where the crayfish was discovered and led to a hefty fine.

Ashley felt this was unfair on many levels - such as not targeting those selling the crayfish.

To get an explanation on what is permissible and what is not, we asked Lionel Adendorf to join us. Adendorf is the spokesperson for the Fisheries Division in the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

The 2014/15 West Coast Rock Lobster (WCRL) recreational fishing season has been restricted to 21 days, and the maximum number of WCRL allowed per permit holder is four. Recreational fishermen may not sell their catch.
