Detail of outcome
As a result of the consultation responses we have developed a set of proposed byelaws for the fishing of salmon and sea trout. We advertised the proposed new byelaws for salmon and sea trout net and rod fisheries in England and on the Border Esk between 7 March 2018 and 12 April 2018. We are currently reviewing the responses.
Detail of feedback received
The summary of initial consultation responses document sets out:
- all the responses to each of the questions in the initial consultation - see section 2
- answers to commonly raised questions - see section 3
The Environment Agency want to understand how they can better manage salmon fisheries in England and on the Border Esk. The outcome of this consultation could affect people whose livelihoods and interests depend on salmon.
This is a chance to give your views on how salmon fisheries are managed and help shape the future of salmon stocks in England.
The responses from this consultation will help develop a better way to protect salmon stocks.
If the best way to protect salmon stocks includes new byelaws or Net Limitation Orders, the Environment Agency will advertise and consult on these so you can make further comments.
