New Zealand changes to the rules for snapper in the Snapper 1 Region came into effect 1 April. The bag limit changed to 7 snapper per fisher per day (previously 9), and the size limit increased to 30cm (from 27cm).
The Snapper 1 Region covers the East Coast between North Cape and Cape Runaway out to a distance of 200 nautical miles. There are no changes to the bag limits or minimum legal sizes outside this area. For bag and size limits in other regions, check your local fishing rules.
