Title: Fisheries byelaws : Anglian region
Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
This booklet contains the byelaws which apply in the Environment Agency Anglian Region for fisheries purposes. They comprise The Lead Weight Byelaws of 1987; the Regional Fisheries Byelaws of 1988 (as amended); and the National Fisheries Byelaws. If you wish to fish in the Environment Agency Anglian Region then you must comply with all of these byelaws. The Environment Act 1995 established the Environment Agency, which took over the fisheries functions of the National Rivers Authority, that had been previously vested in the Anglian Water Authority. In accordance with the provisions relating to the transfer of those functions, any references in these byelaws to the Anglian Water Authority, or to the National Rivers Authority, will have effect as if they were references to the Environment Agency. In 1995 national provisions relating to the close season were introduced. Following confirmation of a number of consistent and standard national byelaws, the provisions relating to the close season for freshwater fish are now contained in the National Fisheries Byelaws.
