To: The welsh government / The Senedd



No further restrictions to Black rock lave net heritage fishermen's catch.

Why is this important?

Black rock lave net fishery is the last lave net fishery in wales and the last on the Severn estuary.
A tradition dating back 100's of years.
Over the past 25 years the fishermen & others have promoted this as a tourism /heritage site ,inviting folk to interact and watch the fishing.
The fishery has led the way in accepting a salmon fish limit of 5 per month for the group during the 3 month season but typically over the past 25 years only catch an average of 6 for the entire season
This sustains the fishery.
This agreement was facilitated by the Welsh assembly government in 2008
Natural Resources wales will if not stopped impose further restrictions which will undermine and destroy the future of the fishery

How it will be delivered

Present to The Welsh Government at the Senedd . We hope to deliver it to them in person if the pandemic allows at the time.

Reasons for signing

  • It’s the only thing that actually helps with my partners critical mental health condition!
  • Typical case of N.R.Wales trying to wrong do what seems like decent people trying to keep a peice of History alive. They should be protected not persecuted. But I suppose we should expect nothing less, as unfortunately, we have become a society accustomed to the "it's not what you know, it's who you know" way of life.
  • This is living history and should be preserved for future generations.
