Catch & Possession Limits
Fishery laws limit the number of fish you can catch or possess.  The number will depend on the species, where they are caught and, in some cases, their size.  The catch limit is the number of fish you are allowed to catch and keep in one day.  Fish eaten for shore lunch are included in the daily catch limit.  The possession limit is the number you are allowed to have in your possession on hand, in cold storage, in transit, etc.  Possession limits are the same as one day¹s catch limit except where otherwise specified. Fish that have been lawfully caught and are suitable for food must not be destroyed or allowed to spoil.  For more fishing information visit the web site of the Ministry of Natural Resources.

Congratulations to all our winners!
