Just based off last years regulations:

Ula (spiny lobster): Season closed from May to August, Min size: 3.25 inches (carapace length), No spearing. Whole only, not mutilated. No taking or killing females.

Ula pāpapa (slipper lobster): Season closed from May to August, Min size: 2.75 inches (tail width), No spearing. Whole only, not mutilated. No taking with eggs. No selling or holding for sale with eggs.
