Undersize Fish and More than the Daily Limit – NSW Fisheries Dept

In two separate incidents at the Kyeemagh Boat Ramp on the Cooks River, Fisheries Officers apprehended three men for possessing prohibited size fish and taking more than the daily limit.

In the first incident, Fisheries Officers found 19 Yellowfin Bream, including seven Yellowfin Bream that had been hidden in a cloth bag in the bow of the boat. Four of the fish were undersize.

In the second incident at the boat ramp, two men aged 52 and 30, from Chester Hill and Mount Pritchard, were found in possession of a quantity of legal Flathead and two undersize Flounder. When Fisheries Officers boarded their boat to conduct a search, both men attempted to discard a quantity of undersize Snapper contained in an esky and a bucket. 13 Snapper and two Flounder were seized and retained as evidence.

All three men have been fined for exceeding the daily limit and possessing prohibited size fish. The men that attempted to discard the esky and bucket of prohibited size fish have also been warned for obstructing Fisheries Officers.
