We want your views on a draft Bass Fisheries Management Plan (FMP).
This is a joint consultation between the Welsh and UK governments.
Under the Fisheries Act 2020 (Gov.UK), the four UK administrations (the fisheries policy authorities) published a Joint Fisheries Statement. This statement includes a list of FMPs to be published over a six year period. Welsh Government and Defra have agreed to prioritise a joint FMP for bass. This will be published in 2023.
