Original consultation

We have extended our original consultation to gain your views on our proposed approach to conserve the Welsh whelk stock.

Consultation description

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.
