Sea bass, Dicentrarchus labrax, have enjoyed legal protection in Ireland for over ten years. The current measures in place for anglers are:

  • A bag limit of 2 bass per angler in any one 24hr period.
  • An overall size limit of 40cm (tip of snout to end of tail), where all smaller fish are returned alive.
  • A closed season from 15 May to 15 June.
  • Sale or offer for sale of bass (other than bass which has been imported into the State) prohibited.

These measures are enforced by the staff of the Regional Fisheries Boards and the Department of the Marine. All concerned anglers on seeing any of the above laws being violated should report the matter to their Regional Fisheries Board.

Please give the Silver fellas a break for a month 🙂
