The LISA Minimum Size Guide
The taking of undersized fish is a major concern for many anglers, not only did LISA create the LISA Business Card for distribution to anglers, we also defined a minimum size guide for our members. Any fish caught under these sizes should be carefully released. If you are not sure then put them back - even a dead fish is food for another sea dwelling creature.
