Fishermen and trappers will no doubt be tempted to catch more cod, but it will be harder to find those fish on sale.
That means there will be less seafood for consumers to choose from.
But it is not just the food that will suffer.
Many of the seafood in the market is farmed.
So is there any reason to think that some of the fish that is in the supply chain is farmer-harvested?
In recent years, the Australian Government has been trying to find a way to ensure that all seafood that is caught is sourced locally.
The new regulations require that the seafood that goes into the food chain be sourced from Australian producers.
What happens to the fish?
The rules will apply to fish caught from Australian waters and caught at a rate of 0.25kg per 100 litres of water.
The minimum catch size will be 1kg.
A catch of up to 20 tonnes of fish will be exempt.
This means that people can catch up to 1kg of fish per week, but the catch limit will be reduced to 1.25 kilograms per 100 kilograms of water in future years.
A new catch limit of 10 kilograms per 10,000 litres of freshwater will be introduced in 2018.
It will apply for the first time to all fish caught on the Great Barrier Reef.
How much will the catch be?
The maximum catch limit is 0.1kg of any type of fish.
The Government is considering whether to limit the maximum catch size to 0.5kg of the same type of food.
What will happen to the catch?
The catch limit and maximum catch level will be adjusted as needed.
This is the time to take advantage of the catch opportunity, but fishermen will have to be more mindful of the rules.
They will be required to pay for the fishing licences of their catch, but there will also be a fee to get them.
How long will it take?
The new catch limits will apply from the beginning of 2018, and will be reviewed every two years.
There is no timeline for the catch limits to be changed.
In 2018, there will probably be a catch limit limit of 1.5 kilograms per fish, which will be the same as the previous limit of 0,25kg.
What if a catch is not caught?
If a catch of more than 10kg of seafood is caught, the fish can be sold.
The catch level in 2019 is the minimum allowable catch, which is 0,5kg.
If the catch is less than 10 kilograms, the catch will be removed from the supply chains and will not be sold, but only sold as raw food.
This will allow producers to avoid paying for licences to catch up and sell fish at a higher rate.
It also means that fishermen will be able to get around the catch cap, which applies only to catch caught at the catch level of 0-10kg.
In 2020, the limit for fish caught at catch level 0-4.5 kg will be 0.2kg.
This does not apply to those caught at levels above 4.5.
For those caught above 4kg, the maximum allowable catch level is 0kg.
Where can I buy the fish I caught?
The Catch-Up Scheme will be available to buyers of fish caught above catch level 4.4kg, and above catch is the catch that is most suitable for consumers.
It is not possible to buy fish caught below catch level 1.3kg.
It might be worth checking the fish you have caught at your local catch-up.
Where should I find more information?
Catch-up is available from the Bureau of Fisheries and Oceans website.
The Bureau of Marine Resources website provides a complete list of catch levels for fish that are caught and available for purchase.
