Options have been developed for potentially extending the beach net fishing season for sea trout. Each option has some degree of impact on the livelihoods of beach net licensees, and on the levels of protection provided to the stocks of salmon and sea trout exposed to the regional net fishery.

We are consulting on the future management of the net fishery to give people the opportunity to understand the options under consideration and provide us with any information they think is relevant to our decision making. You can respond on-line or use the response form below.
