Redfin As Bat


Recommended Posts

Hi riverhauler456.

I notice you are from NSW. If you are intending to use Redfin as bait in NSW it is illegal. 

See below information will help save you a lot of money if you were to be caught.


Compliance with noxious listing of redfin perch from 1st July 2011

On 17 December 2010, NSW introduced further changes to the NSW Noxious Fish List as part of a consistent approach to the management of noxious fish throughout Australia.

Can I use redfin for bait?

No - it is illegal to use live or dead redfin as bait in NSW. No live finfish is permitted to be used as bait in inland NSW waters or any fish or part of fish that is not native to the waters of NSW (other than dead carp).

My understanding is they must be killed and not returned to water just like carp
