There are new restrictions on the size of bass that may be legally kept by anglers and commercial fisherman.
From 1 September 2015, if you catch bass under 42cm in size you must release them immediately.
Please land bass carefully for the best survival on release. This gives female bass the chance to grow to spawning age.
Recreational anglers may keep no more than three fish per day.
The new rules are vital so that anglers can play our part in the recovery of bass stocks
