Permitting Byelaws


Permits

D&S IFCA currently has four Permit Byelaws. If you conduct mobile fishing, potting, netting or diving (for crab, lobster or scallops) you need a permit.

Netting Permit Byelaw

The Netting Permit Byelaw has been signed by the Secretary of State (Defra) and came into force on 1st March 2018.

All commercial and recreational fishers who wish to use nets in the D&S IFCA District (at sea and seine netting for sand eels in estuaries) after 1st March 2018 now need a permit.
