Fishing licence bids by 40 UK, Jersey boats
Thursday 10th January 2013, 1:00PM GMT.
COMMERCE and Employment has received approximately 40 applications from UK and Jersey fishermen seeking to operate in Bailiwick waters.
The deadline for licence applications was Monday.
A new law comes into force on 1 February requiring all vessels commercially fishing within the
3-12 nautical mile limit to hold a Bailiwick of Guernsey fishing vessel licence.
A department spokesman said the applications received were very detailed and officers were processing them before they were presented to the board for consideration.
