Public opinion sought on queenie fishery

Consultation document at gov.im

Queenie stocks on the decline has prompted fresh consultation on future management outside Manx waters.

Marine Scotland is fielding it on behalf of five UK and Isle of Man fisheries administrations due to higher numbers of boats, and increased catch.

It covers fishing off the north coast of Northern Ireland, the west of Scotland and other parts of the Irish Sea.

Views from the public are sought on placing further restrictions on the time, catch, area, the number of vessels, and the gear that can be used to fish in the area.

The consultation document can be found on the gov.im website.
