  4.4 Minimum Sizes
  -----------------


    4.4.1 NFSA Minimum Sizes
    ------------------------
      Minimum sizes are now all metric, approximate imperial sizes are for
      guidance only.


      Fish below these sizes must be returned to the sea. Bringing undersize
      fish to the scales during a competition may disqualify you.


      NOTE - The minimum sizes listed in the NFSA 1997 diary do not reflect
      the changes introduced on 1st Jan 1997. There are also some
      corrections to the specimen sizes which are available from the NFSA
      office.
