If you have to measure it, throw it back

Snapper bag limits in the country's most popular fishery will be reduced from nine to seven, and the minimum legal size increased from 27cms to 30cms from October 1.

As always, if you have to measure it, throw it back, it's too small.  Might do the Snapper 1 fishery some good.

Unfortunately won't stop natives plundering undersized fish and exceeding allowances via their un-policed customary take. 

And as for the commercial pillagers of undersized fish, nothing will stop them.
