Red Fin Perch

Common Name/s: Redfin (English perch)
Scientific Name:

Perca fluviatilis

Bag/possession limit:

No limit. Anglers are encouraged not to return redfin back to the water as they are a voracious predator that prey on native fish species and other aquatic organisms.

Removing redfin will enhance fishing opportunities for salmonid and native species.
