South Australia Squid Fishing Overview

PIRSA Fisheries makes reference to Southern Calamari (Squid) scientifically known as “Sepioteuthis australis” and imposed a different bag limit for both Personal daily bag limit and also a Daily boat limit. There are currently no bag or boat limits for arrow squid.

In South Australia, recreational fishers using rods and lines don’t need a licence.  Licences are required for recreational lobster pots, recreational nets, and for commercial fishing.
