Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations specify natural prawns and shrimps (and any part of them) and natural (fresh or preserved) or artificial worms (and any part of them) for the purposes of the definition of “rod and line in section 4(1) of the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 2003. The effect of this is to prohibit the use of such prawns and shrimps and worms (or any part of them) as bait when fishing by rod and line for salmon and sea trout. The ban on prawns and shrimps applies throughout the River Ness salmon fishery district and the ban on worms applies in the part of that salmon fishery district above Dochfour Weir. In both cases the ban applies without any time limit (regulation 2).

The River Ness Salmon Fishery District (Baits and Lures) Regulations 1990 are revoked having been replaced by these Regulations (regulation 3).

A Regulatory Impact Assessment in relation to these Regulations has been prepared and placed in the Scottish Parliament Information Centre. Copies of it can be obtained from the Scottish Executive Environment and Rural Affairs Department, Pentland House, 57 Robb’s Loan, Edinburgh EH14 1TY.
