Basic Hygiene

Maintaining good personal hygiene during and after fishing is essential to maintain good health.

  • Use a towel to wipe hands after handling fish


  • Do not put your hands in your mouth during fishing


  • Wash hands before eating food, drinking and at the end of the fishing session.


  • Nets and tackle must be thoroughly dried after fishing to prevent the spread of any bacteria from fishery to fishery.
