It should be noted that only persons over the age of 12 may obtain a recreational fishing permit allowing
the fishing, collecting, keeping, controlling, landing, transporting of, or possession of not more than four
WCRL per day. A permit costs R94 and can be purchased at the Post Office. A recreational fishing permit
is valid for the entire season.
WCRL may be caught between 08h00 until 16h00 daily. The bag limit is four per person per day and the
size restriction is 80 millimetres carapace length. No person catching WCRL with a recreational fishing
permit shall sell their catch. Any lobster caught, collected or transported must be kept in whole.
The Government Gazette Notice in respect of the recreational fishing season will be issued in due course.
