As a summary for reference:

Defra confirmed cross border byelaws for the Rivers Dee and Wye (in England) to protect salmon and sea trout stocks.  

The new byelaws agreed by the Environment Agency will protect salmon and sea trout in the English parts of the Wye and Dee. It is in place until 31 December 2029. 

The byelaws mirror those introduced earlier this year by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) and confirmed by Welsh Government which came into force on 31 January 2020. 

This means the fish will be protected throughout the two rivers.
