If you suspect someone is breaking our fishing rules, do not approach them. You can report what you have seen to us either by calling our Bridlington office on
(01482) 393 515
, email us at
or by talking to one of our officers on the ground.
Helpful information includes:
time and date of activity
is the observed activity continuing or finished
number of people involved
vehicle or boat registration numbers
nature of activity
You will be asked to provide your name and potentially your telephone number so that a fisheries & conservation officer may contact you.
All information will be treated in strict confidence.
While fisheries & conservation officers may not always be able to immediately respond, the information you provide helps us to catch irresponsible fishers and to prevent illegal fishing. The information helps us to target our enforcement efforts, and it’s had a major impact on stopping illegal fishing.
