ENVIRONMENT AGENCY
SALMON AND FRESHWATER FISHERIES ACT 1975 WATER RESOURCES ACT 1991 Environment Agency Fisheries Byelaws

Notice is hereby given that the Environment Agency intends to apply to the Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for confirmation of byelaws made under the Water Resources Act 1991 which amend existing 1985 Southern Water Authority Byelaws. The byelaws will:-
? Prevent exploitation of salmon by net across Southern area.

? Allow netting of sea trout in the Beaulieu Estuary only in Southern area.
