BYELAW 11:- DEVELOPMENT OF SHELLFISH FISHERIES
This byelaw enables Eastern IFCA to require fisheries information (e.g. landed weights, area fished, fishing effort etc.) from fishers operating in a shellfish fishery within the district.
No person shall use any vessel in fishing for shellfish unless, if the Committee so require, the skipper, owner or charterer has undertaken to provide and does provide to the Committee for the purpose of development of the fisheries, a record for any specified daily period of actual catch taken, area fished, fishing effort (time and method) and any other information required by the Committee to effectively manage and develop the potential of the fisheries.
