Title: The Ribble fisheries management plan : a consultation document produced by the National Rivers Authority
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
The Ribble catchment is the largest and most diverse river system within NRA, North West's Central Area. The River Ribble and its tributaries support major recreational fisheries for both coarse and game fish, providing sport for thousands of anglers. Within the Ribble estuary there are commercial net fisheries for salmon and sea trout as well as sea fish such as mullet and bass. This consultation document seeks the views of anglers and other interested parties who have an important role to play. This plan not only gives the NRA an opportunity to inform the General Public about its current and intended work programme on the River Ribble but also provides a forum for consultation with river users.
