UK, Jersey fishermen mount new legal challenge to licences
Saturday 9th March 2013, 3:00PM GMT.
A LEGAL battle has started in Guernsey’s courts over its new fishing licence regime.
A UK fishing company and a Jersey fisherman have taken the States to court to try to overturn conditions imposed on them as part of the three- to 12-nautical-mile limit.
It is the second time the States has ended up in legal action in its attempts to control fishing within the island’s waters.
Interfish Wirons Ltd and Steve Channing are claiming that the licence they were granted to fish within the limit attached ‘unreasonable’ conditions.
The two separate cases came to light after they appeared in a sitting of the Ordinary Division of the Royal Court yesterday.
