Consultation on Salmon Fisheries

Closes 9th October.

The Environment Agency is holding a consultation on management of salmon fisheries in England and on the Border Esk. The consultation seeks views on the impacts and benefits of options that have been developed to reduce exploitation of salmonĀ in coasts, estuaries and rivers, together with any further suggestions for reducing exploitation. Salmon net and fixed engine fisheries and salmon rod fisheries are included in the consultation. This consultation forms part of the Salmon Five Point Approach which aims to stabilise and recover salmon stocks to safeguard future populations.

Consultation responses will be used to help develop a set of measures and where these include any new byelaws of Net Limitation Orders these would be formally adverstised, providing another opportunity for responses on those particular measures.
