The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) has announced the total allowable catch (TAC) and 2018/2019 recreational fishing season for West Coast Rock Lobster.
Khaye Nkwanyana, ministerial spokesman at DAFF says the recreational fishing season will commence on the 15 December.
The number of days on which permit holders may fish have also been slashed from 21 days to just 12 this year.
This because of the dwindling crayfish population.
All those who have recreational permits should make use of them to go fishing on those dates.— Khaye Nkwanyana, ministerial spokesman at DAFF
