Local Fishery Groups

We have nine Local Fishery Groups (LFGs) in Wales (Wye, Usk, Taff, Gower, West Wales, Ceredigion South, Ceredigion North, Gwynedd and Dee and Clwyd). These non-statutory groups normally meet at least twice a year.

Purpose of LFGs

  • To act as a communication link with representative fisheries interests and fishing bodies and individuals on fisheries management, enforcement and related issues
  • To provide a forum for the exchange of fisheries management information
  • To seek views and advice from group members about fisheries management and related issues
  • To consider the ecological, biological and economic impact of emerging and new issues affecting our fisheries
  • To raise awareness in the fisheries community and other interested parties regarding development of the fisheries resources and the sharing of good practice
  • To facilitate partnership working
