 EU recreational fishing restrictions  area

In ICES areas VIIj and VIIk from 1st January to 31st December  Bass catch and release only - no keepers

The image below outlines the area concerned…

The 42cm MLS is probably still insufficient. A female bass of 41 cm at start of the spring spawning period will not be a viable spawner, as their sexual maturity is around 46cm. By the time the following annual spawning period arrives, she will be approx. 46 – 48 cm and she will spawn for the first time. IF, with a 42 cm MLS she is caught during that 12 month period and retained she will have been killed BEFORE ever spawning. To ensure all females have at least one spawning, a MLS of 48 cm (2 lbs – 10 oz) is required.
