Scallops & dredge oysters
Gathering shellfish, such as scallops and oysters, is a popular recreational fishing activity for many New Zealanders, particularly during the warmer seasons. Learn more about the specific rules and guidelines you need to follow when gathering shellfish to protect the sustainability of shellfish populations.
Daily catch limit varies by region
The daily catch limits for scallops and oysters vary from region to region. It's important that you check the rules in your area every time you head out fishing. If you eat any shellfish caught during your trip, you must also count them as part your daily catch limit.
Check the fishing rules for catch limits in your region
Legal size limit
The legal size limits for scallops and oysters vary from region to region. Check the rules in your area every time you head out fishing. It's important to stick to the legal size limits as they are set to allow the shellfish to reach maturity and breed before becoming large enough to harvest.
Check the fishing rules for size limits in your region
Use safe and sustainable practices
To stay safe on the water and protect the sustainability of New Zealand scallops and dredge oysters:
dive in pairs
have at least 2 safety people out of the water to be able to respond to emergencies
keep within the size and bag limits
measure and count the shellfish as you collect them
count what you eat as part of your daily catch limit.
