Wash Fishery Order Replacement


The Authority is the grantee of the Wash Fishery Order 1992 which is used to manage public and private bivalve mollusc fisheries within The Wash.


The Order expired on 3 January 2023 and will be replaced with a byelaw (to manage the public fisheries) and a Several Order to manage the lays.


This page will be updated throughout the transition from the Wash Fishery Order 1992 to the new management regimes to keep all those involved up to date and provide the information and documentation.

To apply to fish under the interim measures (WFO entitlement holders only) please complete the form here and send to us.
