New Demersal Boat Limit Rules

Just got an email from Fisheries saying that as of July 1 the boat limit of 2 dhus will be changed to 1 dhu per person however there will now be a limit of 4 demersal fish per boat.

I could probably live with that but some of the lads with bigger boats might be a tad upset with this.

 it was 1 dhu per angler or 2

 it was 1 dhu per angler or 2 p boat anyway.  cutting to 4 for a boat would def be a bit rough for those that fish 3 or 4 to the boat. 

gotta remember the uproar back when the limit was cut from 7.
