Congratulations when you catch any of the above listed fish, catching a sizeable fish is a great feeling, but you don’t have to kill the fish unless you are taking it home for the pot or for bait. Our seas aren’t a bottomless pit of fish, the minimum  sizes limits are  there to guide you. All above with *** next to their name aren’t very good for eating, so just enjoy catching them.

Catch it, weigh it, photograph it and put it back for our children to catch….
