From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The minimum landing size (MLS) is the smallest length at which it is legal to keep or sell a fish. What the MLS is depends on the species of fish. Sizes also vary around the world, as they are legal definitions which are defined by the local regulatory authority. Commercial trawl and seine fisheries can control the size of their catch by adjusting the mesh size of their nets.[1]

  • European Union European Union - A single set of minimum landing sizes applies to all EU member states.
