A TRAWLER that was caught fishing within the 12-mile limit without a licence at the weekend could catch the Bailiwick’s yearly scallop total in just over a month.
CORNWALL’S fishing community is disgusted by the decision to fine a Brixham fisherman £6,000 for trawling Guernsey waters, one of its merchants has said.
THE first fisherman to be prosecuted since a new 12-mile limit was introduced in local waters said he was unaware of the law.
LEGAL proceedings will be taken against the skipper of a Brixham-registered trawler that was impounded yesterday.
MACKEREL stocks in local waters are healthy, Guernsey Fishermen’s Association president Dougal Lane has said.
JERSEY fishermen believe that their historic rights in Guernsey waters will eventually be phased out under a new licensing regime.
COMMERCE and Employment has received approximately 40 applications from UK and Jersey fishermen seeking to operate in Bailiwick waters.
AFTER nearly 60 years together, the last full-time fisherman to leave St Sampson’s Harbour has sold his 73-year-old boat.
FISHERMEN said they would save money and feel safer now that a deal has been struck that allows them to land their catch directly into Dielette on the Normandy coast.
IT CAME as no surprise to see that Peter Frise was the winner of the Guernsey Sea Anglers Club’s first trophy of the 2012 season.
