Cornwall IFCA is holding a series of public drop-in sessions to talk about a proposed new byelaw to manage inshore netting around parts of the Cornish coast.
It is focused on the historic byelaws which were designed to protect migrating salmon by restricting the use of fixed nets.
This is your opportunity to look at the proposed legislation and to raise any comments or concerns, you may have.
If you have a particular interest, or are directly involved in commercial netting around the coast we need to hear from you.
All are welcome and there is no need to book a place please just turn up for an informal chat with one of the officers who will be available at the above venues.
Please contact us for more information.
