What We Do

Almost all the fishing in the Isles of Scilly takes place between March and November. During the season we will be doing patrols to ensure that we continue to achieve high levels of compliance amongst the local fishing fleet.

We also keep a close eye on vessels that are fishing further out and close to our boundary, to ensure that anyone fishing inside our district meets the regulations set out in our local byelaws. See our sections on enforcement and byelaws.

We develop and collaborate in scientific research projects which we use to keep an eye on changes which are taking place within protected areas and the wider seas. See our sections on protected areas .
For information on our new Recreational Fixed Gear Byelaw: Please see a copy of the byelaw here and an application form can be downloaded here.
