Consultation

Devon and Severn IFCA undertake regular consultations relating to different fishing activities. These provide you with an opportunity to have your say. When a consultation is about to begin, we directly notify all our permit holders (Fishers) and all of our contacts on our consultation mailing list. Providing us with an email address helps us keep you informed. We also circulate a free E- newsletter to everyone on our mailing list.

If you want to be directly notified of the consultations then please contact us and tell us.

A Call for Information - Crab Tiles

Devon and Severn IFCA were recently seeking your views on the management of crab tiles. The exercise ended on 8th February 2019. This work forms part of a review of different Hand working Fishing Activities.

Your view is important. We would like to thank all those that provided information during the period 4th January to 8th February 2019.
