Sydney Harbour seafood limits

Post by Matt Flynn »

I was looking at the Sydney Harbour seafood limits (fish from the harbour are affected by pollution) and it is interesting the four worst fish are tailor, bream, mullet, silver biddie and squid.

*Species *Number of 150g serves *Amount per month
Prawns 4 serves per month 600g
Crab 5 serves per month 750g
Bream 1 serves per month 150g
Flounder 12 serves per month 1800g
Kingfish 12 serves per month 1800g
Luderick 12 serves per month 1800g
Sand whiting 8 serves per month 1200g
Sea mullet 1 every 3 months 50g
Silver biddie 1 serves per month 150g
Silver trevally 5 serves per month 750g
Tailor 1 serves per month 150g
Trumpeter whiting 12 serves per month 1800g
Yellowtail scad 8 serves per month 1200g
Squid 4 serves per month 600g
Dusky flathead 12 serves per month 1800g
Fanbellied leatherjacket 24 serves per month 3600g

I would have thought the big predator species would be the more affected, but not so.

Good thing about living in the Top End, mostly very clean, healthy fish! :fishing: :catch:

That's not a lot when you look at prawns and crab either, 600g and 750g, that's easy to surpass up in the north.

Not keen on the statement:
"No fish or crustaceans caught west of the Sydney Harbour Bridge should be eaten"

Do the fish and crustaceans know not to venture to the other side of the bridge :)

Yes, looks like prawns are right up there.

You are right about the fishing moving around. I'd be eating rump steaks in Sydney :D
