1 A water region is determined, if the minimum measure is different by waters or valid only in certain water regions.
2 l – the length of a fish from the top of the nose (with mouth closed) up to the beginning of the mid-streaks of the caudal fin.
3 L – the length of a fish from the top of the nose (with mouth) up to the end of the caudal fin. Fish is considered to be full-sized if at least one of the given measures (l or L) is equal to or exceeding the minimum measure.
4 The length of crawfish is measured from the top of the skewer tip to the end of mane (without counting the small hair of the mane).
