SUSTAINABILITY
It is our highest priority to target the fish species that are deemed to be sustainable by SARDI.

We respect all guidelines, restrictions and requirements imposed by the Primary Industries and Regions South Australia (PIRSA).

Fish stock
We abide by the size and bag limits regulated by PIRSA identified through scientific research through the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI). We fill out a daily catch return that is then handed in to SARDI to show what biomass has been taken out of the ocean in our area. Size and bag limits ensure that fish reach maturity and can complete the breeding cycle. We do our best to return fish alive if undersized or unwanted. It is not allowed to mutilate fish on board.

More information on fishing limits for SA can be found here.

Minimize environmental impact
We collect all of our rubbish and old fishing tackle and dispose of it in a responsible manner so that other marine species are not disturbed and to maintain the clean environment we are very lucky to fish in. We respect the ocean and are 100% committed to do the very best to keep our pristine fishing environment
