Back of Boat Lobsters Report
BOB Lobster Report (DPIRD)
This report contains information relating to the landing of western rock lobsters by licensed commercial fishers in the West Coast Rock Lobster Fishery, under the ‘Back of Boat Sales’ (BoBS) mechanism, which was introduced into the legislation on 12 September 2020.
A maximum limit of 100 lobsters per landing was initially applied to the mechanism. To match demand and allow for an expansion in the program the limits changed at the end of November 2021 to allow for 200 lobsters for every month, except for December where they can land 400 lobsters. This limit was further increased to 999 lobster from 1 July 2023.
