Hand Gathering Byelaw 2021
Notice is hereby given that Sussex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (Sussex IFCA) intends to apply to the Minister for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for confirmation of the Hand Gathering Byelaw 2021.
The Hand Gathering Byelaw 2021 establishes new management for the harvesting of marine fauna and flora from the intertidal zone by hand, or with hand held implements. Hand gathering includes bait collection for angling and the removal of species for human consumption.
To support the statutory consultation process for the Sussex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (Sussex IFCA) Hand Gathering Byelaw, the Authority has arranged opportunities for members of the public to meet with Sussex IFCA Officers, to both discuss the proposed management and look at available information.
