From today, April 1, the legal limit for the size of a snapper has increased to 30cm and the total bag limit drops to 7.
Last weekend was the last time the 27cm length snapper where about to be caught by recreational fishermen from the east coast of Northland, the Hauraki Gulf and to the Bay of Plenty.
The changes were signalled last year by government but many people still remain angry with the new size limit.
Many people predict that shore based fishermen will struggle to take home a feed.
Commercial fishers remain free to land snapper as small as 25cm.
The government believe that the new measure is needed to ensure that the number of snapper remain stable.
