    Itís ridiculous that this is even on the table. It shows you how little the EA care or the power that some people have over them.

    Start reading at page 22. This is a list of activities for which the EA issues permits. For a small(ish) fee of course...

    Thereís a misconception about what the EA is. Itís a government agency applying environmental laws, as directed by government. In this case, last yearís byelaw changes were aimed at protecting salmon. Salmon have a much higher international profile than sea trout, through NASCO and being a listed species under the EU Habitats directive.

    Understandably, the netsmen werenít happy and the minister asked the EA to investigate whether it was possible to have a sea trout fishery that didnít impact on salmon. Being a government agency, the EA have done what the minister asked. This consultation is your chance to sway the ministerís opinion: heís the one who chooses whether or not to sign off the byelaw changes that are required to reinstate some or all of the netting season.
