Sussex IFCA review of Nearshore Trawling and Netting Management

Sussex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority is reviewing its by-laws and wants the public’s views on how it should manage netting and trawling out to 6 miles.

Save Our Sea Bass has written a consultation response – please read it here and send an email to SxIFCA, saying you support it.

This is our chance to create a Net Free Zone, so shore anglers will never again see trawlers operating just yards offshore or wall-to-wall nets set close to the beach, reducing their chance of catching anything to zero.  A net free zone will provide valuable protection for flora and fauna too.  Get your voice heard and improve the quality of sea angling in Sussex forever.
