There are a lot of fishes off the coast of Hobart, Tasmania. I will list some common fishes. The APP of fishery administration www.fishing.tas.gov.au is only in English, which is difficult for those who are not good at English And there is still a big gap between the pictures of fish in the APP and the actual ones.
Based on my previous fishing charters experience, I have listed the photos of the fish in comparison with their English names for reference by friends who are new to fishing here.
Friends who first come to Tadao to fish must follow the Fishing Rules here, and strictly follow the regulations to fish and take away the fish.
If you are not sure about the type of fish, you do not know the compliant size. In this case, you should ask online in time. If you don’t ask for approval, don’t take the fish away because the fishery administration will conduct random inspections from time to time. If you are a regular fish, the fine can't be avoided.
Fishing should not only pay attention to the Bag Limit per person, but also the Possession Limit of the number of fish in the house. Generally speaking, the number of fish remaining in the house cannot exceed twice the number of fish that can be fished. For details, please refer to the fish regulations.
