Commercial Shore Netting Update

A big thank you to everyone who supported our campaign against the Government changing the law to allow commercial shore netters to land and sell sea bass.

Unfortunately, the Government has gone ahead and made a law that says the prohibition on landing and selling bass does not apply to bycatches from some commercial shore netting.

This legislation seems to us to be ill-founded and incoherent:

  • no bass catch limits
  • no closed season to protect spawning bass.
  • will increase bass mortality, particularly juvenile bass
  • discriminatory against recreational fishing
We also have grave concerns about the way this policy decision was made.  This is not the way to gain the trust or support of sea anglers.
