Isle of Man bass proposals accepted.

A big thank you to those of you that took the time, to write in regarding the Isle of Man bass consultation document. The proposals have been accepted & should be law later this year (summer time) here on the Isle of Man.

For clarity the legislation is going to be :

Restriction on any commercial fishing for bass

1 fish bag limit

Slot size 50 cm to 60cm

Fisheries also wish to introduce a form of collecting bass catch data. This may be via a phone app or pen & paper.
