Brown Bullhead Catfish – Code of Practice
MFish has developed this Catfish Code of Practice to to help avoid catfish (of all life-stages) from being unintentionally released into new waterways. The Code of Practice supports the regulatory measures recently introduced.
The amateur fishing regulations were amended so that non-commercial fishers are now required to kill all catfish immediately on capture and only dead catfish may be possessed. The commercial fishing regulations were also amended so that commercial fishers are now only allowed to possess live catfish up until the time that they sell their catch to a licensed fish receiver.
