Rock Lobster Fishery
The South Australian Rock Lobster fishery is based on the capture of Southern Rock Lobster (Jasus edwardsii). Other species are permitted to be landed and sold, including giant crabs and octopus. Rock Lobsters are commercially harvested with pots that are set over night. Rock Lobster licence holders may also harvest marine scalefish as endorsed on their licence. The Rock Lobster fishery is separated into 2 zones: Southern Zone, all marine waters between the mouth of the Murray River and the Victorian border, Northern Zone, all marine waters between the mouth of the Murray River and the Western Australian border.
