Regulations still apply in the movement control area for White Spot Disease.

All fisheries regulations still apply in the movement control area for white spot disease.

This includes size and possession limits and what form the fish product can be in. For example, while fishers can cook crabs on their boat, they can’t break them up or remove the meat.

Under fisheries regulations, a person must not possess:

– mud or blue swimmer crabs with the carapace (shell) missing. This includes possessing claws without the rest of the crab.

– crabmeat – unless the crabmeat is for immediate consumption.
