Legal Requirements for Anglesey Gill Netting.
Can you tell me what are the legal requirements for setting gill nets around the coast of Anglesey?
This is a question about gill netting on a strictly non-commerical basis with just a single net.
I had a conversation with a Marine Officer of Anglesey County Council on your behalf the other day.
First of all, there is absolutely no reason why you cannot engage in a bit of non-commercial gill-netting in well-defined areas on the Anglesey Coast and the Menai Straits.
However, you will need a licence
and of course there are specific requirements on the net that you can use.
I have been advised to direct you to the North Western & North Wales Sea Fisheries Committee
website for their guidance.
Here you will find the relevant byelaws, designated area maps and gill net dimensions and restrictions.
I hope that this information is of use to you and other fishing colleagues.
