Are about round here. I've checked the local IFCA byelaws and there doesn't seem to be any restrictions on size - does anyone know of any or have any advice on the size to keep?

Some of the larger ones are are a good size, 10cm nose to tail, that's not including their antenna otherwise they would be 20+ cm long.

Very good M-J, but doesn't that add to the taste?!

So it does, thanks. I was returning ones under about 7cm at a guess, there were loads of smaller ones about and shrimps I think.

Have you ever found squat lobsters down here?

No, sorry. I've found diddly squat lobsters ever. I think Green Cliffs is meant to be the place to look though.
