Catch, Photo, Release

SSA fully supports the practice of catch, photo, release.

To help sustain healthy fisheries well into the future SSA has developed their own bag and size limits that are within the current NSW fisheries limitations to protect highly pressured and valued species. Fresh fish is great source of Omega 3’s and essential fish oils and is highly recommended in your diet. To this end, SSA believes in only taking what you need for your immediate consumption, not filling your freezer!
Dan will happily clean your catch at the end of the charter so don’t forget a small Esky (keep in car). There is usually some spare ice in the on board Esky to keep your fillets cold for the trip home.
