Title: An introduction to eel and elver fishing
Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
The National Rivers Authority's policy is to encourage the development of the eel fishery. However, whilst we are active in monitoring and managing the biological aspects of the fishery any commercial development rests with the fishermen themselves. This booklet is designed to advise anyone interested in fishing for eels of some of the different aspects they will need to consider. The next step is to find both a suitable site to which access and permission to fish can be secured, a market through which the catch can be sold, the most suitable equipment for catching and holding the eels and the best method for their transport. Finally, licences can then be obtained from the Fisheries Department in Cardiff and you can then commence operations.
