BYELAW XXIX Humber Estuary Fishing Byelaw 2022
This proposed byelaw maintains existing provisions for the management of trawling activities within the Humber Estuary and includes a revision to the boundaries of the ‘Spurn Point Sea Grass Area’ to ensure the continued protection of sensitive marine habitat, from potentially damaging activities, within that designated area.
BYELAW XXVIII Shellfish Permit Byelaw 2022
This proposed byelaw sets out new provisions for the management and conservation of crab and lobster stocks throughout the Authority’s district. As well as including all existing current management measures in force, designed to protect lobster and crab stocks within the NEIFCA district, the new byelaw regulation also provides for a number of new measures to be applied and varied, as mandatory conditions to the permit issued.
