Additional information

These fish can't be filleted in or on Victorian waters. They must be kept whole or in carcass form until you're away from the water. It's okay to fillet your fish on the cleaning tables at the boat ramp.

These fish are also subject to a closed season, meaning they can't be taken or possessed in, on or next to certain rivers, river sections and streams. Click here for more information on trout and salmon regulations.
