We are working on a new Cockle Fisheries Management (Wales) Order. 

The new order will come into force in 2024. It will replace: 

  • The Cockles and Mussels (Specified Areas) (Wales) Order 2011 
  • Byelaw 47 of the former South Wales Sea Fisheries Committee. 

Under the new order, applicants will use our Manage fishing permits and catch returns service to apply for a cockle gathering permit.
