Bag and size limits which relate to the number of fish kept and the size of fish in length, apply to individual waters.  Unless otherwise specified, the daily bag limit for most salmonid species and blackfish is 12 fish and the minimum size is 220 mm.

However there are many exceptions to the general rule. These are listed in the Special Regulations Chart in the Tasmanian Inland Fishing Code or you can search the regulations database relating to the specific water that you want to fish.

The daily bag and size limit for bream is 10 fish and 250 mm, and for eels it is 12 fish and 300 mm, while a zero bag limit applies for estuary perch.

Fin fish, other than bream, should be measured from the tip of the snout to the fork of the tail. Bream are measured from the tip of the snout to the end of the tail. The fish should be measured when first caught and immediately returned to the water if undersize.
