What is a bag limit?

When we say “bag limits” we are referring to a catch limit each day by individual fisher. This type of regulation would amount to “two fish of Species A per day” for example. 

Bag limits can be a powerful fisheries management tool for protecting spawning aggregations and priority species groups

Data on the number of fish taken per day per fisher can be used to inform how effective different bag limits will be

The Bag Limit Builder takes user submitted data and creates projections of the impact of a potential bag limit policy, to help users determine if a particular bag limit will help them to reach their fishery goals
