We have extended our original consultation to gain your views on our proposed approach to conserve the Welsh whelk stock.
We are proposing to introduce:
- an authorisation scheme for licenced and registered UK vessels fishing for whelks (Buccinum undatum) with pots in the Welsh zone
- an annual limit on the total amount of whelk that can be taken from the Welsh zone, and
- a flexible monthly landing cap for authorised vessels.
